For season two of their adidas Soccer collaboration, KITH looks to its three soccer clubs, with this particular capsule revolving around the Miami Flamingos. Accounting for the retailer's second team, the Flamingos have already won a semi-pro championship, all while landing a SportsCenter Top 10 highlight along the way.
“The Flamingos color palette pulls inspiration directly from our second home of Miami. We used a rich navy to resemble the water, a soft tan color for the sand, and pink for the bright pastels Miami is known for,” explains KITH founder Ronnie Fieg. “For Season 2, we felt that the evolution to a sponsored jersey would really distinguish this collection. We also felt that with our teams, Miami specifically, having won a league championship between Season 1 and 2 that they deserved to wear something more authentic."
"Working with our partners to become sponsors on the jersey filled that void. Chase has been our banker since KITH was a start-up, so they’ve helped the brand and I grow a lot over the past six years. That’s why I chose to work with them. Their iconic logo lends itself well to the Flamingos color palette, which made Miami the perfect fit.”
Alongside the KITH x adidas x Chase jerseys, Fieg and KITH also present two colorways of adidas Soccer Nemeziz "Miami Flamingos" footwear. Boasting the club's signature colors, the Nemeziz UltraBOOST 17+ notes a laceless pink Torsion Tape upper, complete with KITH logo hits on the medial side and tonal 3M Three Stripes on the lateral side. White BOOST tooling then plays complement, as do the heel counters and rubber outsole.
The Nemeziz 17.1 TR in turn welcomes a more color-blocked look, featuring a majority pink upper accented with a navy engineered mesh toe and grey detail on the heel wrap. KITH branding is highlighted in white on the Torsion Tape panels.
In celebration of the release, KITH is hosting a special launch event at their Miami flagship one day early. Both jerseys will be available in-store only at KITH Miami exclusively for Chase cardholders. All proceeds will be donated to support Hurricane Irma relief.
You can then look forward to a wider release, including the jerseys and sneakers, taking place this Friday at KITH shops, the KITH Fred Segal pop-up at 8500 Sunset Blvd, and KITH.com at 11 a.m. EST.
