For pared-down looks and retro sporty vibes on off-duty days, K1X has your footwear sorted. Master cool athletic looks with low-tops in rich suede, go for a gritty streetwear aesthetic in work-boot styles or discover your hip-hop roots with basketball shoes.
During the golden era of basketball in 1993, when the NBA went global and hip-hop culture was at its peak, K1X was born on the streets of Munich. Created for ballers by ballers, the label offers players, breakdancers and rappers (and those of us who just like their style) an alternative to mainstream fashion and sports brands. Fast-forward 20-odd years and it’s clear that K1X has lost none of its attitude. Designs continue to embody the label’s basketball-culture identity, with high-tops dominating the range. Lace-up pairs featuring velcro straps and cushioned detailing have a 90s streetwear vibe. Add an old-school twist to your off-duty wardrobe by mixing these classics with tapered jeans or a denim shirt for a contemporary look.
For afternoons shooting hoops (or attempting to) pick out K1X performance trainers designed especially for the label’s heritage game. These sporty shapes have textile and mesh panels for comfort and ventilation during play and improved traction on the soles for sharp pivots on the court. Basketball trainers and low-tops in rich suede and leather give the sneakers a luxe edge, with work boots adding a grungy energy to the collection in moody hues and sandy tones. For the weekend, team with sweatshirts or slogan T-shirts for a low-key look with a nod to the label’s urban roots - whether you’re chilling out mixing beats or working on your slam dunk.
