Kith, a multifunctional lifestyle brand, opened its first flagship store in Japan on 4th July. The store is located in Shibuya, Tokyo inside the newly developed Miyashita Park, and offers Kith apparel and a curated selection of footwear for men, women, and kids.
To commemorate the opening of Kith’s first permanent presence in Japan, the brand has worked with Nike to create a collaborative Air Force 1.
Inspired by the Japan flag, this model features an all-white premium leather upper with red hits seen on the velvet lining and embroidered mini toe Swoosh. The flag is used for the tongue label which also features Kith branding. The quarter panels are debossed with Kith’s monogram pattern, while the sole unit is finished in a vintage beige. Other details include special Kith Air logos, a reimagining of the Nike Air logo, embroidered on the heel tabs and printed on the footbeds.
Paying homage to Nike’s co.JP Japan-exclusive Air Force 1 line from the early 2000s, this model is released exclusively at the Kith Tokyo flagship on 4th July. It will not release online nor at any other Kith shop.
