What can we say except that the first edition of the KickIt market in Rome was a hit? It was just like that, a full success! With hundreds of people quequing outside the location of the event since early morning, the place has been full packed all day long, starting from 12pm with the doors opening, until 8pm when the first tables started to pack their grails to drive back home.
At KickIt you could find dope sneakers from the latest releases like those offered by Mesh&Laces, selected vintage kicks by Sneak My Style, sneaker collectors like Lorenzone and his stunning grails such as the Nike Air Mag, hype streetwear and accessories from Supreme, Stone Island and Thrasher, some underground labels and quality sneaker art by the German collective Need More, innovative sneaker boxes by CrystallBox, the first Italian sneaker cleaner by the good guys of DenaLab, as well as tattoo artists, workshops, good food, great music, nice people and guests such as Shoenica, one of the Masters Of Air.
The Vinile, a worldly location close to the heart of Rome, was a good place for this first edition but thanks to the few thousand people that attended the event, the KickIt team will need to find a bigger space for their second event that has already been announced for Spring 2018. We want to thank Fabrizio and all the KickIt family for having us and we can't wait for the round two.
