In creating this KICKS/HI X Hurley capsule, we approached its design as pieces that could function together in different combinations throughout the day, from dawn patrol to evening. Transitional lifestyle items such as the zip-up, tech windbreaker and the formless caps provide purpose (warmth, sun protection) as well as style driven pieces with the punk fashion inspired panel blocking.
The KICKS-HI X Hurley Phantom 18 Board Short is built for high performance with recycled 4-way stretch fabric - its shorter length enables a full range of motion in the water. The board short features a sublimated custom tiger camo pattern which is a juxtaposition of military tiger camouflage with polka dots. The tiger camo Phantom material utilized in the board shorts are carried over into elements of the zip-up tech windbreaker and formless water caps. With the dawn to dusk theme in mind, we also added reflective 3M elements into the board short, windbreaker, slide and sandal.
The main focus of this capsule is based around the KICKS/HI X Hurley Phantom Free Sandal and Slide. Throughout our history of collaborations, KICKS/HI has been able to help launch new Hurley footwear technology and silhouettes. The sandal and slide both employ Nike Free 5.0 sole technology for best comfort and improvement of your athletic performance with the proven benefits of barefoot training. Allowed freedom, your toes will flex and grip, exercising muscles in a natural chain neglected in traditional footwear.
