With the opening of its first location in Paris, Kith has partnered with Nike to celebrate its new storefront in French style.
The Ronnie Fieg-founded brand and retailer tapped the Swoosh for a Paris-themed take on the classic Air Force 1 Low silhouette. The sneaker is set to drop exclusively at the new Kith Paris flagship on Feb. 26. for $159 (130 euros). The collaboration will not release online or at any other Kith location.
Tackling the retro sneaker that debuted in 1982, the Kith for Nike Air Force 1 “Paris” iteration pulls inspiration from the French flag, echoing its clean red, white and blue design. The three colors appear repeated across the shoe with the retailer’s box logo etched in “bleu, blanc et rouge” on the tongue. Mixing smooth leather uppers with a soft velvet lining, the same box logo also is visible with subtle embossments under the Swoosh logo on the sneaker’s mid panel.
The Kith Paris storefront is located at 49 Rue Pierre Charron, open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. CET. In order to ensure health and safety during these times, the store will operate on an appointment-only basis for the time being; walk-in guests or non-scheduled appointments will not be permitted.
