The most anticipated pack to come from the limited edition K1Xclusive Spring 2011 range is the Sierra Leone DCAC Pack, dropping early next week.
As part of this project K1X will be placing 22 colorways of the sneaker, each coming limited to only 15 pairs, at some of the best retailers around the globe. Each boutique will get its very own colorway, available nowhere else. It arose within the framework of the Folorunsho Design Project, which remixes original African materials and techniques with western design. From the proceeds of each of these 330 unique sneakers, $25 will be transfered directly to the Sierra di Lion Sharity Trust Fund, which supports the local youngsters, that actually design and manufacture many of the folorunsho pieces.
The pack is topped off with 22 different New Era 59/50 caps, made of the same Ankara fabrics, so that the caps will match the selected DCAC SL shoes exactly. A tad of pop on the underbrim of these K1X New Era fitted caps adds a distinct Sierra Leone flavor to an otherwise all black lid.
The K1X Sierra Leone DCAC Pack will see an official release on April 4th, including colette Paris, Limiteditions Barcelona, Sneakersnstuff Stockholm, Pool Munich, Overkill Berlin, Black Rainbow Paris and many others.
