Editor’s Notes: To celebrate the opening of the latest Kith store in Shibuya, Tokyo, Ronnie Fieg is dropping a pair of Japan-exclusive Kith x Nike Air Force 1s. Images of the sneaker have existed for some time now, as have rumors of an expansion into Japan. The store, which is located in Miyashita Park, opens on July 4. The collaborative sneakers will only be available in-store at the opening. Fieg has promised that the sneakers will never release online or in any other store, as he says he was inspired by the Japanese exclusive Air Force 1s that dropped in the early ’00s.
Kith Tokyo is open on an appointment-basis for the time being. The store’s hours are 11am to 1pm local time.
