This last year has been one of the best years of my life. With Kith having success in such a short period of time, I believed it was extremely important to put time aside and remember how fortunate we all are to have shoes to put on everyday. I want to bring awareness to all of you and stress how important it is to give to the unfortunate whenever you are in a position to do so.
This colorway and final sample was sent to me over 3 years ago and the inspiration was the Soles for Souls T-shirt colorway which was green and white. I was lucky enough to have ASICS agree to work on a charity project that would bring over 300 pairs of brand new sneakers to the unfortunate in Haiti. I wanted to not only bring the Haitians sneakers but give them something fresh for the new year. Brand new kicks made with heavy materials that would last them a while (until the next time I come through).
Heading over to Haiti is Kith’s very own Pete Forester. Pete will be there to distribute the sneakers and t-shirts starting tomorrow and will spend 5 days with the Haitians doing different activities. Pete has played such a major role with growing Kith this past year and was quick to volunteer. I mean he REALLY wanted to go. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Pete. These are the type of gestures that will never go unnoticed.
There are other plans that will put in effect soon. A plan that will involve some of you to help with this program. Until then, lets wish Pete a safe trip! Make sure to follow pete on his journey here.
