This time the unlikely duo, looked to reference Kickers’ place as a cultural staple in rave and indie-rock culture, more specifically during the rise of the Manchester scene in the mid-80s, into the early ’90s. Set to release in neon yellow, orange, and tonal black, the premium takes on the low-top boat shoe silhouettes are constructed of lush nubuck decorated with co-branded silver-tone eyelets and a “PALACE” logo badge. Additional detailing comes in the form of a Kickers midfoot tab, branding hang tag looped through the laces and a rubber plate embedded into the tongue. Finally, elevating the collaborative shoes are thick rubber outsoles marked with sculpted line designs.
Check out the Kickers collaboration above and look for the shoes and this week’s Summer 2019 drop to hit palaceskateboards.com and Palace London, New York and Los Angeles locations May 17 at 11 a.m. BST/11 a.m. EST/8 a.m. PST, while Palace Japan will see a release at 11 a.m. JST May 18.
In case you missed it, Starwalk adopted classic team colors for its upcoming release.
