Continuing to tell the story of the shop’s Mynah Bird mascot, the collaboration bridges the gap between old and new with fresh takes on the OG Sk8-Hi LX and tech-updated Authentic Lite LX. Both sneakers feature an embroidered Mynah Bird pattern, inspired by the concept introduced in the Stussy x KICKS/HI collab last summer.
Woven lauhala box imagery pays tribute to Hawaii’s history in handcrafted artistry, and still playing up the “old school to new school” concept, is displayed on a modern pull-out box. The canvas dust bag is a nod to the boutique’s previous “Mauka/Makai” project with Vans Vault and Sig Zane.
The "Mynah" Collection, including a matching New Era cap, is available now exclusively at KICKS/HI, KH/GU (Guam), Saint Alfred (Chicago) and United Arrows & Sons x KICKS/HI shop-in-shop (Japan).
