QUICKSTRIKE – “BALLERS PLAY HARDER” TEE … OUT NOW!

When basketball is played our way, you might as well bring a helmet! This iconic K1X design tackles a laughable cliché head-on, portraying basketball as the full-contact sport it obviously is. The cobalt-blue/flame-orange color combination is a classic hint at basketball culture, while the two stripes on the t-shirts sleeves spell: football. The Ballers Play Harder tee is now available at selected retailers.

Spotted: August Alsina

In late 2013, Alsina already gained recognition with his single “I Luv This Sh*t”. The song made Alsina the first R&B singer to top the charts with a debut single since Jeremih’s “Birthday Sex” (2009). About half a year later, Alsina is currently on the cover of XXL’s latest 2014 Freshman Class issue and just released his debut album “Testimony”, which entered the Billboard 200 album charts at the #2 (!) spot. We caught up with him in Berlin recently, where he copped our Roar Flag Snapback Cap.

Tie-dye tank tops by *folorunsho for K1X

A new series of 80 limited tie-dye tank tops marks the third collaboration between *folorunsho and K1X and was released exclusively at Pigalle (Paris), MRQT (Stuttgart), Unotre (Italy) and Feature Sneaker Boutique (Las Vegas) on April 4th.

K1X_Folorunsho_Tank_Top_01

*folorunsho is a creative collective from Sierra Leone, formed in 2011 by 20 young men aged 14–22, who were living under crucial circumstances in a gutter called “Lion Base” in the central part of Freetown. The Lion Base crew personifies the transformation from a ‘struggle for existence’ to ‘creators,’ transforming the ‘impossible’ to “I’m possible”.

Still stricken by the aftermath of the war it was impossible to find the necessary material in Sierra Leone. Thus the journey led to the neighbouring country Guinea. Back in Sierra Leone the material was then hand tied and dyed using local indigo colour. The production of the tank tops involved lots of innovation and improvisation due to the scarcity of basic necessities in Sierra Leone such as electricity and running water.Finally the material was shipped to Bavaria where 80 individual tank top where cut and sewn.

100% of all profits go directly to the *folorunsho creative collective to provide themselves with food, shelter adequate living conditions and seek an education for the first time in their lives.
