Kith is giving back, literally. Last year, the New York-based retailer teamed with Nike to create 100 pairs of an Air Force 1 Low exclusively for friends and family of the chain. In an effort to raise funds for COVID-19, five of the employees who received the Air Force 1 Low sneakers have returned it to help Kith raise funds for Direct Relief, a California-based charity.
The spiffy white leather shoe features a swoosh embossed with a box version of the Kith logo and is distinguished by a Forrest green mini-Swoosh positioned on the shoe’s lateral mudguard.
According to Kith boss Ronnie Fieg, “Five members of our team gave up their pairs for this cause. Tickets will be sold to enter the drawing for each pair to raise money to donate 100% of the proceeds to Direct Relief’s COVID-19 Response Fund.”
Each raffle entry is priced at $10 with a limit of 100 tickets per person. All funds raised by the raffle will be donated to Direct Relief’s COVID-19 response fund.
Raffle entry begins on May 14, 2020 and runs through May 17th at 6:00 PM EST on kith.com.
