After sponsoring the K-Spray tour for the past two years, K-Swiss marks its commitment to the stencil art community by introducing the Logan Hicks-designed shoe. This project marks a joint venture between Logan Hicks, K-Swiss, Evil Monito, and Blackbooks Stencils.
The shoe features faux croc leather, a translucent red mid-sole, and premium pigskin interior. The fabric portion of the shoe uses one of Logan’s signature designs, which is also found throughout the packaging. Every pair of shoes comes with an embroidered felt shoe bag and matching Logan Hicks shirt.
The shoeboxes are hand-crafted through a multi-step process: using the same signature design in the shoe, the stencil on the box is cut by laser and then the pattern is applied by hand to the interior and exterior of the box. This unique approach ensures that no two boxes are exactly alike because of the variations that occur when stenciling. The box is then signed and numbered to guarantee the exclusivity of the edition.
The shoes in the hand-crafted boxes are limited to 216 pairs and are available online exclusively through the EM Co-Op store at evilmonito.com/store. Retail cost of the shoe is $150 which includes shipping within the continental United States, the embroidered felt shoe bag, and matching Logan Hicks shirt. An additional 400 pairs of shoes, offered in the standard packaging, are available through select retail outlets in Asia, Australia, and the United States.
To celebrate the official release of the shoes, K-Swiss is sponsoring a shoe launch for the Logan Hicks and Sixten shoes. Sixten, another renowned stencil artist, will fly in from his native Sweden for this one night only event. Both artists will be doing a live installation. The live stencil event will take place at Sportie LA in Hollywood on November 30th. The live installation will be open to the public, but you will need to RSVP (via: email) for entry to Sportie LA.
