KITH X NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW “PARIS”
A few months ago, I told you in an article (available HERE) about the famous Nike Air Force 1 Kith « Paris ». A pair of shoes created by the American designer Ronnie Fieg in honor of the opening, in early 2021, of his first European shop Kith based in Paris.
I came all the way to Paris to get this AF1, I suggest you to discover it in pictures on my feet.
The sneaker consists of a pure white premium leather upper with tonal overlays. The side Swoosh, tongue and laces are also in white. On the side panels, we find an embossed KITH monogram logo, adding character to the pair. To affirm the high-end design, the inner lining is made of velvet and comes in navy blue color. The mini-Swoosh on the mudguard is embroidered in blue, white, red, a nod to the French tricolor flag. The co-branding on the tongue label also appears in the form and colors of the French flag. This pair, worked with care, has particular details, as the prints on the insole and the heel logos KITH AIR and NIKE AIR revisited in the Ronnie Fieg way. The whole is based on a yellowed vintage sole, finalizing the design.
What to say except that I validate in 100% this collaboration paying tribute to France. For me, white on an AF1 is already a « no fault ». Combining it with a mini Swoosh in the colors of the French flag blue, white, red in a discreet but effective way, brings a certain cachet to the pair. The other details (Kith engraved on the side panels, the label on the tongue, the « Kith Air » embroidered on the heel …) are also beautiful. If I had to find a small defect, it would be, as for the Air Max x Sean Wotherspoon, its lining type velvet that catches the sock until we remove it on part of the foot. In short, you will have understood, this AF1 seems to me essential in a collection of sneakers addict.
