On July 4th, Kith will proudly open the doors to their first flagship store in Japan. The store is located in Shibuya, Tokyo inside the beautiful newly developed Miyashita Park, and will offer 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 will be released exclusively at the Kith Tokyo flagship on July 4th. It will not release online nor at any other Kith shop. Retail is JPY15,000.
To ensure the safety and well-being of our Tokyo community, Kith Tokyo will be opening on an appointment-basis for the time being. Customers who signed up yesterday for reservations will be given a day/time slot to explore and shop comfortably. Therefore the Kith x Nike Air Force 1 “Tokyo” will be handled on a first come-first serve basis for those who have confirmed store reservations. For more info please visit KithTokyo.com.
