Why I’m A Shameless Kith Fanboy

s258702199577610096_p50_i2_w1500

I don’t partake in groupie-ish activities. I don’t ask “famous people” for pictures. I don’t tweet shit intentionally thirsting for retweets from people or corporations. By and large, I don’t really partake in fanboying at all.

However, the exception to that is Kith. I absolutely love Kith. Everything from Ronnie Fieg‘s collaborative sneakers with Asics and New Balance, to their clothing collections (the first Essentials drop and White Label 2.0 would be my favorites if I had to chose), to the recent Kith Treats cereal bar inside the Brooklyn Kith location. Why do I love Kith so much, you may ask? There’s a few reasons. read more

WAX’s First Lineup Has Been Unveiled

Over the past few weeks, you’ve probably been wondering exactly what the deal with WAX is. The tweets, videos, and posts on it were somewhat cryptic..and that was by design. However, the wait to find out what exactly’s going on is over.

Last night, we dropped the announcement video you see above. The show will be the first in our monthly series of shows at the Kitty Cat Klub (did you catch that in the last video?), and Su Na will be headlining (yes, that was one of his tracks in the background of the skate video as well. Even more hidden symbolism). We’re also bringing our Left Life family out (that’s johndaniel, Widikus, Mikael X, and Akru The Zulu to be specific), and our resident DJs Connye and BVCKWOODS will be spinning as well. read more

Keep It 100

You know what the best thing about being a KicksOneTwo reader is?

It’s that we’re always going to keep it 8 more than 92 with you (that’s 100 for anyone out there who’s¬†mathematically challenged). We believe that honesty is the best policy, and we strive to make sure every piece we write is as brutally honest as possible.

There’s too many sites and “personalities” nowadays that seem to have lost their way, and shamelessly amp everything that a company puts out, either because they’re getting paid or because they’re getting sent free product (or they’re hoping to). There’s nothing worse than just turning into a corporate megaphone, and we’re never going to be doing that here. read more

WAX Update

We’re drawing closer and closer to the first installment of WAX (11/19/15 to be specific), and there’s a lot of dope new stuff going on. First off, WAX is now on Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr, so be sure to follow all those platforms to keep tabs on what’s next for WAX.

Secondly, we just dropped a new promo video. Although specific details about what’s going down are still under wraps (we promise they’re dope and we know that you want to know more, but what’s better than a surprise, right?), I can give you a hint: there’s a lot of hidden symbolism in the new promo video, which is below for your viewing pleasure. read more

Starting Five: Jordan Bachmeier

We’re back.

That’s right, we’ve got an all-new Starting Five, courtesy of our good friend Jordan, who was kind enough to let us shoot the five kicks that are currently in his rotation (and their doubles of course…you’ve got to be sure to keep two pairs on deck if at all possible). Let’s get right to it!

1. Supreme x Nike Air Force 1 High

Jordan Says:¬†The red AF1’s were my favorite colorway out of the three Supreme released last year. I threw the white laces in my everyday pair, they contrast so well with the white upper. read more

Ronnie Fieg Changes the Game (Again)

kith

Ronnie Fieg is a game-changer. There is no doubt about it. Despite critics saying he’s falling off, the man just keeps working and keeps innovating. It doesn’t matter what you’ve thought of his most recent releases and designs; you just can’t knock the fact that he continually pushes the envelope in every single way. His innovation and creativity shined again today with the #UberRush x #KithStrike release of the Diadora RF 7000. Ronnie partnered with UberRUSH and released 24 pairs of the Diadoras today for Manhattan customers only. Those that were lucky enough to purchase in time got the sneakers delivered in as little as an hour. (Don’t worry, these will still be available for purchase on October 23). read more

Jordan Brand Dropped The Ball With The Summer 15′ Releases

Summer is truly, fully, 100% over. No matter how hard everyone who’s still wearing shorts and sandals is trying to hold on, it’s gone. It’s fall now, and winter is right around the corner.

Now that summer’s over and the hype for any summer releases has passed, I can look back on the full slate of summer footwear releases with a more unbiased view. And when I do that….there’s only one thing I can think of. Jordan Brand really dropped the ball with their Summer 15′ releases. I’d even venture to say that Summer 15′ was one of their worst seasons in the last few years. read more

The Best Fall/Winter Footwear

It’s that time of year again. The change of seasons is in full effect. Leaves are changing colors, the temperature is dropping, and you can break out your full wardrobe.

With this change of weather comes the need to change up your footwear. Sure, you can wear heat all winter long if you’re so inclined, but do you really want to risk trashing all your shoes with all that salt, snow and water all over the place? I didn’t think so. Thankfully we here at KicksOneTwo are glad to help, and we’ve got a list of the best fall/winter kicks of the season on deck. Don’t say we never did anything for you. read more
