They 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 their signature shop orange, which they use extensively from their Orange Label cut and sew and bag program as well as through all of their collaborative efforts.
To accent the KICKS/HI x Reverse Jam shoes, they created a new “Natives are Restless” tee in three colorways. They 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 their online shop 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.
After the jump you find detailed images of both the sneakers and the t-shirts.
