K1X started out in 1993 when a few T-shirts were sold from the loading area of a pick-up truck, in Munich, Germany. All items at K1X, also accessories, are inspired by basketball lifestyle but more specifically, streetball lifestyle. Everything by K1X, from the balls to the bags, has been tailored to the needs of basketball players. In 2002, K1X launched its first basketball trainers, the Chiefglider, and its unmistakable K1X design propelled the shoe into the limelight and it quickly developed a solid fan base. Another basketball shoe, the Anti-Gravity, gained fame when James “Flight” White wore them at the NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
