The K1X LP is more than just an understatement! Thanks to its high-quality processing and updated, high-grade design it's one of the most popular lifestyle sneakers out there. Combining close-meshed canvas and selected leather, the "LP Superior" reflects maritime characteristics while also being more durable than a boat shoe. Notable upgrades in the form of lining (out of full grain leather and Nylon mesh), a new nubuck leather patch on the tongue, round eyelets and a perforated sockliner with heel cushioning have been made. Heel and instep area are made out of robust PU-leather, which provides for a dependable, weatherproof use. Assuming by the shoes' look, LP stands for „low-profile“ and represents K1X with a non-slip zig-zag pattern right beneath the sole. Another extra: Two sets of shoelaces come along with every sneaker – made out of leather and waxed canvas respectively. Play hard!

The history of K1X began 1993 in Munich selling t-shirts off the back of a pick-up truck. The brand, which sees itself as a connector between the hiphop and basketball culture, is firmly established in urban lifestyle worldwide and featured in all relevant magazines. In 2002 K1X released their first own basketball shoe – the chiefglider – which was worn by Star-Foward Ron Artest in NBA games. Nowadays K1X is a major player in the global hiphop gear market and the only brand embracing a genuine basketball heritage, which is the focal point in all of k1x‘ endeavours, past, present and future.
