KITH Cobras? What is that you may ask… The KITH Cobras are a NYC based soccer club that play in the New York Bowery Premier League, whose captain is Florencia Galarza, a very well known female soccer player which used to play for Boca Juniors and is currently a Global Adidas Ambassador. Florencia is a first generation American with deep Argentine roots. Miami born and raised, New York City educated. Her three biggest passions are sports, music and style/fashion.
Ronnie Fieg earlier on today took an image to Instagram announcing the upcoming KITH Cobras X Adidas collection along with the story of how the KITH Cobras came about and how he met Florencia Galarza. Here it is:
“This is Florencia Galarza, the captain of the Kith Cobras, as well as a close friend of mine. She approached me 2 years ago with the opportunity to have Kith support a soccer club in New York’s Bowery Premier League. After a few passionate conversations with her I realized it was a good opportunity for Kith to enter into the world of soccer. We created our own jerseys for the squad, which they wore when they’d go onto win their first championship the next year. After this Flo and I had a few more discussions about the possibility of perhaps doing something even larger. We knew that if Kith was to create a full soccer collection that it would have to be with the sport’s global leader, so we partnered with adidas to innovate top tier soccer product that could translate from the pitch to the street. Over the course of the next year I fell in love with the product so much that we wound up making not 1, but 2 collections. I can’t wait to finally share the fruits of our labor. Kith x adidas Soccer. Soon come.”
With that said we can expect a KITH Cobras X Adidas collection very soon featuring jerseys and possibly even more apparel. Are you inspired? Because I sure am, Ronnie Fieg is an inspiration to many including myself on a big scale. Stay tuned for more news regarding this upcoming collection.
