The Second Drop of the KITH x Nike Collection is Here!
The KITH x Nike collection dropped on Friday, Oct. 6. The two high-profile brands named their collaboration “Take Flight.”
The set gave the spotlight to basketball legend Scottie Pippen. It includes apparel inspired by the Air Pippen 1 in animal print and black pony hair uppers.
It also includes hoodies, t-shirts, and nylon track suits. The second drop of the “Take Flight” collection happened at the same time with the grand opening of KITH’s SoHo Flagship at 337 Lafayette Street.
Honoring the Point Forward
This time, the collaboration between KITH and Nike takes Pippen’s first signature sneaker and uses it as a base to provide two new iterations. The point forward’s animal-like tendencies on the court inspired the new models.
The first colorway is named “Chimera.” It boasts of pony hair all throughout its upper and is mixed with various prints such as those from the zebra, tiger, lion, and leopard. The upper rests above the sneaker’s traditional sole unit and translucent airbag.
Meanwhile, the second colorway still features full pony hair but in all-black. It complements the new models’ animal theme while its red airbag provides a classy aesthetic to the upper’s black color.
Each sneaker is placed in special packaging. Fans can buy the pieces exclusively online as well as at all KITH shops.
