The KITH x Nike Air Pippen 1 Collection is the second launch from the KITH x Nike Take Flight Collection which includes two color options of the Nike Air Pippen 1.
For the two, Ronnie Fieg applies two premium executions to Pippen’s first official model, the Air Pippen 1, both of which feature an animal-theme due to Pippen’s freak abilities on the court as well as the menacing appearance of Aaron Cooper’s silhouette.
The first model, entitled the Chimera, features a full pony hair upper comprised of various animal prints including Leopard, Zebra, Tiger, and Lion. The name is derived from a mythical beast that was multiple animals in one. Similarly, Pippen was multiple animals in one on the court, as he could play any position effectively. This upper sits atop a full white sole unit with a translucent air bag.
The second model serves as a nod to the OG Air Pippen 1 which featured a Black upper with Red accents. Fieg’s rendition furthers the animal motif, as the Black upper is redressed in pony hair and sits atop a tonal midsole unit with a Red air bag.
Both models feature asymmetrical branding, which includes the OG Pip logo as well as a Kith version, as well as leather lining and custom-printed insoles. Lastly, both are accompanied by special packaging.
