Following the launch of its Miyashita Park flagship in Tokyo for Summer 2020, KITH is expected to expand upon its real estate portfolio and open up doors to a new space in Paris. And in a similar vein to the Japan opening, Ronnie Fieg and his camp are yet again partnering up with to release a collaborative Air Force 1 Low inspired by the “City of Light”.
Three tones including white, navy and red are pronounced on this lifestyle-ready proposition, all of which are ripped directly from France’s flag. Swooshes, as well as the forefoot and back ends of the base are smoothened out in texture and lent a colorless aesthetic, while the quarter paneling brings back the streetwear retailer’s signature monogram pattern that was also spotted on the KITH x Nike Air Force 1 Low “Tokyo”. From there, French accents take over by evenly distributing the flag’s colors atop the remixed tongue logos and embroidered forefoot checks, in addition the heel’s KITH Air logo which is seen solely dyed in dark navy.
Sliding down just below is the standard AF1 low midsole and outsole, both areas being identically wrapped with a sail hue to channel an aged aesthetic.
No release date has been uncovered yet, but it’s likely that these will drop exclusively at the KITH Paris opening which could occur in the coming months. The MSRP will also likely be $140 USD.
