Returning after a 15-year hiatus, the silhouette will serve this week as a global exclusive to Kith’s new Miami flagship store. The 2016 version of the rare silhouette will feature pretty much the same aesthetics as the OG model, only difference now is the more narrow look of the shoe. Initially debuting in 2001 as a Japanese exclusive regional release, the version of the shoe features a tan premium leather upper with hits of pink on the Swoosh logo, midsole and outsole.
To further the festivities of this sneaker release, Kith and Nike are tapping contemporary artist Futura to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art as well as a select number of custom Nike boxes. Kith's Miami flagship store location is set to open its doors this Friday, Dec. 2, and will be located at 1931 Collins Ave. The Nike Air Force 1 Linen is set to raffle on four different days after the Kith Miami grand opening.
