The KITH x Nike Air Pippen 1 collection drops this Friday
The second installment of the KITH x Nike Take Flight Collection includes two re-designed Nike Air Pippen One colorways, and boy don’t they look good.
Ronnie Fieg applies two premium executions to Pippen’s first official signature sneaker, the Air Pippen 1, both of which feature an animal-theme due to Pippen’s freak abilities on the court as well as the menacing appearance of Aaron Cooper’s silhouette.
The first model, entitled the Chimera, features a full pony hair upper comprised of various animal prints including Leopard, Zebra, Tiger, and Lion. The name is derived from a mythical beast that was multiple animals in one. Similarly, Pippen was multiple animals in one on the court, as he could play any position effectively. He was a genuine beast.
The second model serves resembles the the OG Air Pippen 1, which featured an all-Black upper with Red accents. Of course, Ronnie has added his flair with a full-pont hair upper in jet Black.
Both models feature asymmetrical branding, which includes both the OG “PIP” logo as well as a KITH version, as well as leather lining and custom-printed insoles.
But what’s also cool as an added touch is the very unique boxing is comes in.
The KITH x Nike Air Pippen 1 Collection to release on Friday, October 6th, at all Kith locations and online at Kith.com. And of course this release coincides with the opening of Kith’s all-new SoHo flagship store at 337 Lafayette St.
Both models will be Kith global exclusives and will not release anywhere else (untill they pop up of Flightclub). The retail price tag is set at $205 – but expect a pretty decent resale price if you miss out.
