After introducing the K1X DCAC by Patrick Mohr in 2010 – and the great success of the follow-up Mk2 last year – basketball brand K1X proudly presents the 3rd edition of the K1X sneaker, remixed by the heralded designer Patrick Mohr. Many details including the upper material have been upgraded for this latest issue. The Mk3 was created with premium suede leather in three new color ways: blackberry, petrol and grey. Also the trademark triangles on the quarter piece (de-bossed) as well as the wooden triangles on the tongue accessory (glossy finish) have been upgraded.
The “runway-sneaker“, which was previously sold at Wood Wood, Berlin (Mk2), 424 Fairfax (Los Angeles) and Sneakerhead (Moscow) among other destinations, features three different looks that can be adapted according to personal preference. The wooden triangle on the shoes’ tongue doubles as an accessory and can also be worn as an amulet. The ankle leather straps can be fixed to the ankle or be worn as a wrist-accessory.
The Mk3 is limited to just 160 units per color world-wide and will only be available at selected A+ retailers like PIGALLE (Paris), QUARTIER 206 @ Lafayette (Berlin), PRIMITIVE (London), POOL (Munich) and FOURTWOFOUR ON FAIRFAX (Los Angeles).
The sneaker was launched in a pre-release party at POOL (Munich) alongside (DJ) Patrick Mohr, (DJ) Cambis, the K1X collective and guests in Munich, Germany on Wednesday, November 14th 2012. The global release took place on Saturday, November 17th 2012. The Mk3 is now available at a retail price of 160,- EUR.
