k1x with Sierra Leone

k1x-with-Sierra-Leone4

This an awesome execution of traditional meets modern identity.  This project is related to Sierra Leone. The German basketball brand k1x released a limited edition pack, which comes in 22 different colour styles which were limited to 15 pairs per style worldwide.

The materials used on the shoes are actually from Sierra Leone and are original African ankara fabrics. Apparently the proceeds of each of these 330 unique sneakers will be transfered directly the Sierra di Lion Sharity Trust Fund, which supports the local youth. via afroklectic
