KITO Wares Mother Mary “Sanctity Blue” Releases Oct. 29
Indiana’s Kito Wares is no stranger to controversy. Their Christmas Day Passion of Christ Dunks caused a stir last year, as did their follow-up Passion of Christ Resurrection Days in September of this year. Though many say their sneakers are blasphemy, the series aims to reach a less vocal topic of discussion — the blind worshipping of brands.
Their next installment, this week’s KITO Wares Mother Mary, draws down on the Air Jordan 3 design, with a few added embellishments, including crucifix heel and tongue tabs — as well as a trio at the midsole’s midfoot — and Mother Mary herself at the midfoot. Uppers spruik a sky blue finish, with everything else opting for pure whites — what else for Mother Mary, the purest of beings?
While other streetwear designers have tried to call attention to the way fans religiously follow a brand, the KITO Wares Mother Mary sneakers do so quite literally by integrating Christian iconography. The bundle will release on October 29 and will retail at $150, including the shoes, a 7 sorrows candle, a poster, and a collectible box. Shoes purchased on the kito.online drop will come with an additional poster.
