Editor’s Notes: To coincide with the opening of its new Los Angeles flagship, KITH is set to release Chapter 2 of the “Long Live the King” collection with LeBron James and Nike this Friday and Saturday. In sticking to a theme of royalty, the capsule is highlighted by a pattern that draws inspiration from a king’s cloak, thus hand-embroidered on various product.
In total, four iterations of LeBron James’ Nike LeBron 15 will be made available. On the performance side of things are the “King’s Cloak” and the “Suit of Armor” colorways. The “King’s Cloak” boasts a white Battleknit upper with multicolored embroidery and a gold Riri zipper. The “Suit of Armor” then welcomes a triple black look, with tonal embroidery and a gunmetal Riri zipper.
Lifestyle pairs of the LeBron 15 include the “King’s Crown” and “City of Angels.” Black Flyknit takes over the upper of the “King’s Crown,” with multicolored embroidery and a gold medial side zipper closure playing complement. The “City of Angels” variant points to KITH’s new LA flagship, featuring a triple white scheme, tonal embroidery, and a silver medial zipper. Each lifestyle edition of the sneaker arrives with two full-length straps and one half-length strap for customization.
KITH x Nike “Long Live the King” Chapter 2 arrives Friday, February 16, exclusively in-store at KITH LA, followed by an online launch at midnight. All other KITH stores will then make the collection available the following day, while the triple white product will only be sold on kith.com.
