K1X

K1X

K1X was able to establish on the German market in 1993 when the German basketball squad won the European championship for the first time. The brand was brought into being by passionate basketball players from Munich. Designing some caps and T-shirts, they wanted to put their vision into action and sold these items from the load bed of their pick-up truck. They soon recognized the urgent need on the fashion market and felt that more and more basketballers were convinced of the brand. So they decided to open their first small basketball sneaker shop in Schwabing, a Munich borough. Therefore, it wasn’t surprising that K1X didn’t only come as a real bombshell among basketballers but has come to establish itself as a lifestyle brand which convinces due to highest quality and hip designs – in the field of sports but also on the streets.

K1X

As a “Nation of Hoop” it is taken for granted to provide basketballers as well as skateboarders with hip styles. The brand sees basketball as a culture which it can fully identify with. K1X, therefore, is a collective of fanatics for fanatics. Their own streetball squad, called K1X Warriors, was a major milestone in the history of K1X as well as their first basketball shoe launched in 2002: the Chiefglider was produced in more than 20 different versions. About three years after its market launch, the Chiefglider has become firmly established in the NBA. The collection dedicated to the Sierra Leone squad was another important point in the history of the brand: Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries of Africa. But due to the strong will to play basketball under suboptimal conditions, Africa serves as a model for the K1X team. Another K1X project is the cooperation with 20 waifs and strays from Freetown, Sierra Leone who create batik patterns which are then launched as limited shoe collections. And the revenues, of course, directly go to the village.

All the K1X products offered at our online shop are at the pulse of time which could be down to the fact that the brand cooperates with many artists whose ideas and creativity influence the designs of the products. To the delight of vegan shoe friends, the K1X range of goods also comprises some vegan shoes which can be ordered at our shop.
