The iconic artwork for this mini-collection (which features a t-shirt, hoody, crewneck, satin bomber jacket and a New Era snapback cap) was created by NY-based graphic designer Bill McMullen (also see his legendary album covers for Def Jam!), who also collaborated with K1X in the creation of the infamous 4-E basketball series.
The “Blackboard” is half black power fist, half basketball backboard. A critical reference to the correlation between the African American struggle for political equality – and today’s (professional) basketball culture. Or… just a really dope design, that symbolizes the mighty power of basketball. Nation of Hoop represent!
Launching this week at the finest retailers only, including Colette (Paris), Sneakersnstuff (Stockholm) and the all new www.k1x.com/shop!
The Nation of Hoop was in the building to witness a dominant performance of FC Bayern Munich against Hagen in the Beko BBL this Saturday. Man of the match? Tyrese Rice with 30 big points and 6 assists, who was spotted after the game wearing our brand new Blackboard Hoody.

Our buddy Carl from NYC is a great dude, veteran Gotham ballplayer and social media monster, with way more followers than your average celebrity.

When this tee released in a white/black color way a couple of weeks ago, it was an instant sellout. Since the In Paris Tee was gone quicker than Roadrunner in his prime, we brought it back, donning a black/white color way this time. The shirt is available now at Kickz.com and other fine retailers but you’ll have to act fast.
Check out what Lawrence bred Termanology has to say on MTV News about his new mixtape “Hood Politics VII”.

This special release of the K1X Anti-Gravity is made out of 100% colibri foreskin leather which is by far the softest leather there is. However, it is extremely rare and difficult to obtain in the big pieces needed for the shoe manufacturing process. The special construction of the K1X Anti-Gravity (made out of 18 small pieces) made the construction of this highly limited edition even possible. This is an industry’s first: No other shoe has ever been made from this most expensive leather on the market.
K1X would like to express its gratitude to the “Vogelhaus” and its team at the Munich Zoo, Hellabrunn. Without their help and technical know-how, this project would not have been possible.
The Hummingbird edition of the K1X Anti-Gravity is extremely limited. Only twelve pairs were produced (sizes 8 thru 14). Since a high demand is expected, the Anti-Gravity Hummingbird will not be released through the K1X online store but via email on a “first-come-first-served” basis. Email your size request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
