Kicks/HI infuse their well-known island flair into this upcoming release with Reebok on a Reverse Jam collection. The Reverse Jam features a micro-perforated suede upper marked by symbolic embossings on the heel that spell on “HONO” + “LULU” and “YKWWS” respectively on the green and black versions. The green vs. black is a contrast of home (green) and away (black) as well as inspirations from sports and Hawaiin lifestyles. A “Natives are Restless” t-shirt will also release and included in the purchase of each pair of shoes in addition to being sold separtely. The shoes will release on Saturday, June 13th at both KICKS/HI Ward and Makaloa spots as well as online at KicksHawaii.com. Look for the shoes to also hit KICKS/HI Guam and Saint Alfreds in Chicago.
We used a micro-perf suede for the upper-accented by a stamped heel: “HONO” + “LULU” (on the green pair) and “YKWWS” (on the black pair). The colorways represent a home (green) and away (black)-as much of KICKS/HI inspiration comes from sports, island lifestyle (specifically growing up in Hawaii). The predominant color accent on both shoes is our signature shop orange, which we use extensively from our Orange Label cut and sew and bag program as well as through all of our collaborative efforts.
To accent the KICKS/HI x Reverse Jam shoes, we created a new “Natives are Restless” tee in three colorways. We will be including the KICKS/HI “Natives are Restless” tee as a gift with purchase of a KICKS/HI Reverse Jam at KICKS/HI Ward and Makaloa locations-as well as in our online shop (http://www.kickshawaii.com/new/store/main.html) on Saturday, June 13 2009. The t-shirt will also be available for sale separately.
The KICKS/HI Reverse Jam shoes + KICKS/HI “Natives are Restless” t-shirts will also be available on Saturday, June 13 2009, at KICKS/HI Guam and Saint Alfred with limited release to select boutique partners later this summer.
