The Kith x Nike Air Force 1 Low 'Knicks' is Dropping On Christmas DayRelease: 25 December 2021
Ronnie Fieg is playing Santa Claus this year – he recently took to his Instagram to announce that Kith and Nike's latest Air Force 1 Low colab would be hitting shelves on Christmas Day. Essentially a black-based version of the Kith x Nike Air Force 1 Low 'New York' that was released in 2020, the shoe was created in partnership with the NBA's New York Knicks, a fitting full-circle moment for the Queens-born Fieg.
Atop its black leather upper, this Knicks-themed Air Force 1 boasts bold blue and orange Swooshes (the former on the lateral side, the latter on the medial side) plus Kith tongue and heel embellishments and Nike's classic NYC graphic on its lateral heel. Down below, white midsoles and icy translucent outsoles round off the look.
The shoes also appear to be accompanied by a full collection of Swoosh-ified apparel, as seen in the above video that features Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch of The Lox spitting Big Apple-centric bars while standing centre court at Madison Square Garden, the home of the Knicks. Fieg fans will recall that 2020's Air Force 1 campaign was spotlighted in a similar campaign with Dipset's Cam'ron, Juelz Santana and Jim Jones – a group that The Lox faced off with in a Verzuz battle earlier in 2021.
Look for the Kith x Nike Air Force 1 Low 'Knicks' and its corresponding apparel to release via the Kith webstore on December 25.
