Kickers ‘FORTY’

November 6, 2015

Yet another release based around an anniversary. This time it’s Kickers, who are celebrating the 40th birthday of their Kick Hi boot. And to mark the occasion, the brand have collaborated with Port Magazine’s David Hellqvist and Document Studios to produce a retrospective publication, tracing the historical and aesthetic legacy of this footwear classic.

Designed by Mark Thompson, FORTY features interviews with stylist Simon Foxton, a collaborator and wearer of the brand; an overview of the Kick Hi’s denim roots by writer Dean Mayo Davies; the sub-cultural impact of the boot by editor Daryoush Haj-Najafi and a selection of new editorial that celebrates the boot’s contemporary influence.

It’s fair to say that the Kick Hi has left a cultural footprint across the last four decades and continues to do so until this day – even my four year old daughter stomps around in a pair and she’s the coolest person I know. For more information on the brand and to find your nearest stockist, go to the website here: Kickers.
