Iconic Label Karl Kani Relaunches Sneaker Lineup with ‘The 89’Release: 13 February 2021
Iconic streetwear label Karl Kani are teaming up with global retailer SNIPES to relaunch their sneaker lineup, with ‘The 89’ the first nostalgia-packed silhouette to hit shelves this month.
Made famous by rap superstars such as Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg during the 90s, Karl Kani continues to expand across the globe, with stores now established across Europe and Japan. Continuing to embrace classic cuts and bold colours, the label re-enters the footwear game with a timeless court-inspired low-top that’ll seamlessly slot into any modern sneaker rotation.
Coming through in four slightly different colourways, The 89 adopts the tried-and-true combination of white leather and a classic rubber sole unit. The upper features clean lines, with subtle bursts of colour on the lacing, heel, and the ‘Karl Kani’ signature branding on the forefoot. Additionally, perforations on the side and toe box create a throwback aesthetic, while providing additional breathability. Down below, the aforementioned sole unit shines with minimal detailing, and a logo hit towards the rear. It’s the perfect sneaker to pair with your baggiest 90s denim!
Karl Kani’s The 89 will arrive at SNIPES in store and online on February 13, with more styles to release in the coming months. Stay tuned!
