British Knights Are BackBritish Knights is bringing back the exact late 1980’s look and style that caused the brand to be popular at the time. From the brand’s first sneaker launch in 1985 through the early ‘90’s British Knights rose to the highest levels of the athletic footwear industry. These meticulous replications, the identical sole mold to the precise matching of signature BK prints, elicit the retro feeling of the extreme late 80’s.

British Knights are also teaming up with leading industry designers to produce innovative, cutting edge cooperations. BK and Gio Chiappetta (Pro Wolf Master) are debuting a sneaker in May called the “Purple Wizard Moccasin” (photo on left). A vibrant purple based graphic hi top- an ’89 shoe redesign in ‘08. A leather hi-top with canvas details.
