Chiefglider Limited Edition Series

Question: What do you get when you combine class, character and substance into a sneaker?

Answer: K1X Chiefgliders

K1X is synonymous with the Chiefgliders and vice versa!! The quality of material used and workmanship shown on the Chiefglider's construction is a testimony that K1X is a serious company and a force to be reckoned with.

K1X officially entered the shoe-making business in 2002 with the release of the Chiefglider, a three-quarter high shoe that provided equal parts style and functionality. After only 18 months on the market, since 2002, K1X has sold about 16,000 pairs of Chiefgliders, which have come in 18 styles so far ( KNOW THIS : Chiefgliders are not exclusive because they are expensive, it is because K1X never makes more than 1500 pairs of any colourway).

The clean look and comfort of the Chiefglider, combined with its sheer rarity, make the shoe a collectors dream. What's even better is that none of those qualities have come at the expense of the shoe being amazing to do what it was design to do – TO BALL IN! To expose K1X's shoes to real basketball players, in the summer of 2004, K1X teamed up with the legendary and most prestigious street-basketball institution in the world, “The Rucker” to become the official shoe of the Rucker league, held Friday nights at Rucker Park, Harlem, New York City.

But hey, don't just take our word for how much of a bad-ass hoop-shoe the Chiefgliders are, check these links for other people's opinions:

With a pair of these bad boys laced on your feet, you will always be styling, whether its on the court, off court, or with a cool pair of jeans.

The EBC began in 1982 as games between rap groups, and bounced around a few parks for a few years before finding a long-time home at Rucker Park.
