It’s been a long time coming. As most know, these started out as a sample from a few years back. I showed some of my closest friends, and they were very skeptical. By skeptical I mean, they thought I was fucking insane for trying to drop, what they thought to be a “pink” shoe. By the advice of my crew, I decided to give them away as a one of one giveaway. The response was kinda crazy, and I got hit with a lengthy e-mail petition to produce the Salmon Toes. So, about a year ago I finally had them made. These are a big deal to me, and not only because of the response they have gotten, but because this release is also going to mark the grand opening of KITH. I wanted both the release and grand opening to be extravagant and I’ve worked extra hard on this to make sure it’s as special to you, as it is to me.
To assure this is going to be epic I’ve included some exclusive pieces for the in-store release. With the help of my good friend Chris Lee over at Good Wood and KITH’s newly appointed, genius graphic designer MASCustoms, we’ve created the craziest sneaker packaging ever. The details of this box are absolutely insane and it’s made from the most premium and heavyweight wood we could engrave. The box will include a KITH x Asics collaborative Salmon Toe T-Shirt (100% heavy-weight cotton and made in the USA). The last piece to complete the collector’s set will be the wooden dog tags, which were also produced with the help of my homie Chris Lee. These tags include both the KITH symbol and logo, Asics logo, as well as our motto, “Just Us.”
My objective has always been to make people feel like they are getting more than what they are paying for. This is an extremely special release to me, and I am grateful to everyone that is taking part in it. I want to give a special shout to Angel for the Salmon Toe shots, and SQ for the Collector’s Box shots. You guys absolutely murdered these shots.
