Editor’s Notes: A day after revealing the new city edition uniform for the New York Knicks, Ronnie Fieg and Kith have debuted a complete capsule dedicated to the NBA franchise. The brand has partnered with Nike for the upcoming collection, which is led by a crisp white colorway of the Air Force 1.
The Kith x Nike Air Force 1 Low “New York” has been teased for months. Here, however, we get an official look at the shoe, which is decorated on the sides with blue and orange Knicks-specific Swooshes. Additional branding pointing to the Empire State appears via the NYC Swoosh logo on the heel.
To complement the Forces, Kith, Nike, and the Knicks have created an off-court apparel and accessories collection consisting of more than a dozen styles. Ranging from hoodies and sweatpants to crewnecks and T-shirts, silhouettes are offered in a New York Knicks-inspired color palette of blue and orange. Nike’s iconic Swoosh logo and the Kith classic insignia properly brand the collaborative items.
Further paying homage to New York, Fieg and Kith tapped Cam’ron, Jim Jones, and Juelz Santana, collectively known as Dipset, to model the collection for a campaign that was appropriately captured in Madison Square Garden.
