Taking the old to the new …
“Now… what y’all wanna do? Wanna be ballers? Shot-callers? Brawlers!!”
If you are reading this, you are probably one of those heads that call the court “home“. One of those dudes, who lives in the park come summer time. Someone who knows the code…
And if your go-to move is the stuff of legends, if you hoop it up ‘til way past sundown, if a rebound is more important to you than making sure nobody gets hurt, if your mindset is to turn camaraderie into a vicious battle and then back to friendly banter, if you don‘t even notice the bruises and scars, if you‘ve been playing at the same court forever, if you got “next“ without needing to call it, if you‘d stick up for some guy just because you‘ve played with him, if your favorite way to fight a hangover is a good run in the sun, if you know who Billy Hoyle is without having to look it up, if you‘d rather do it in the park than on the hardwood, if the sound of bouncing leather balls on asphalt makes you salivate for action…
If all the above rings a bell… then you have “Park Authority“. Then you are in good company here. Welcome to the Nation of Hoop!
The good folks over at Highsnobiety give you an exclusive preview of our new spring/summer 2014 collection. Enjoy!

The guys over at Kicks on fire are previewing the all new lifestyle version of our AG, the Anti-Gravity Street which is set to release later this month.
… and that makes the park our church.

The international launch of our notorious DCAC collaboration with designer Patrick Mohr (now in it’s 4th installment) was recently celebrated at “KICKZ Torstrasse” in Berlin. The event, which also included performances by Andhim, Mandel Turner as well a “Vogueing Happing” (yeah, we weren’t sure about that one either…), quickly went from friendly-gathering to so-so-hype to moshpit-mayhem. We had a blast! But see for yourself…
Wow … four? Really? K1X salutes and congratulates Macklemore & Ryan Lewis for winning the Grammys for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song with “Thrift Shop” plus Best Rap Album “The Heist”.
And although a lot of hate has been circulating already e. g. cause Kendrick didn’t win any award in the Staples Center, let’s get one thing straight: Hip Hop in general did it big that night!
Also, Daft Punk and Pharell Williams took home the awards for Record Of The Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Get Lucky”. Coincidently we still have a few K1X “Lucky tank tops” left.

Catch him alongside Ryan Lewis at the Grammys on Sunday, January 26th. In case you’re wondering, Mack’s favorite hoody is sold out – we still have some sizes of the Pin-Up Babes Tee available tho…

The Beko BBL All Star Day, held this past Saturday in Bonn, might just have been the best edition the yearly celebration in Germany’s highest professional league has seen in recent memory. Our K1X Warriors more than held their own with Per Günther, Brandon Thomas and Dirk Mädrich suiting up for the All Star Game while our boy Lipek went absolutely bonkers in the Dunk Contest. A special high-five to Ulm’s Will Clyburn who put on one helluva show! PG threw in the 2nd place in the 3-point shootout for good measure.
The style highlight of the night certainly goes to sharp-shooter Edgar Sosa, rocking our Blackboard Snapback Cap during the contest. Aside from a surprise comeback by Chris Ensminger (Salute!), Dirk Mädrich earned the fans’ outmost respect. Started from the bottom for real.
