Nike and Kith “5 Decades of Basketball” Collection

Nike x Kith 5 Decades of Basketball Collection.

New York based streetwear brand Kith teams up with Nike for a special launch of a Nike x Kith collab. The release is part of Nike’s upcoming 5 Decades of Basketball celebration. For the partnership, The Nike x Kith shop will house 5 decades of Basketball limited shoe and apparel releases. The launch coincides with the start of New York Fashion week and follows recent drops of the COMME des GARÇONS x NikeLab Dunk High “Clear and ”Comme des Garçons x NikeLab Air VaporMax.

Traveling through years of archives, the Nike 5 decades of Basketball shoe collection offers five new takes on classics. The sneaker release includes updates on The Blazer, Air Force 1 High Lux, Foamposite, Zoom Generation, and  finally the Flight Bonafide. All of the models are considered iconic silhouettes of the Nike hardcourt legacy. Further tying the project together, each shoe comes in a cool vachetta color tan leather alongside rose gold accents. Other notable edits include a heel zipper, added woven Flyknit, and an extended collar on the Zoom Bonafide, newly named the Flight Bonafide.
