The Hive’s favorite children’s shoe brand AKID has teamed up with Jaime King on an exclusive collection designed by her and inspired by her children, AKID x Jaime King.
“Jaime has been a customer of AKID’s and a huge supporter of the brand since day one. It was such a natural fit to collaborate since she is a mom who shares similar fashion philosophies for her children and ultimately wants to create a product that is unique and playful,” said AKID co-founder Ashleigh Dempster. “The collection was very much a joint creative effort with personal touches like the custom hangtag made by Jaime’s children.”
AKID, whose celebrity fanbase includes the children of Kim Kardashian West, Charlize Theron, Beyonce, and many more, will debut 7 styles of shoes as part of the Jaime King x AKID collection.
Inspired by the outdoors and James Knight’s favorite colors, the capsule, which comes in a rich fall palette like burgundy, olive, purple, and navy, features whimsical elements like pom poms and removable foxtails in addition to custom hangtags designed by Jaime’s sons, James Knight and Leo Thames. The shoes range in price from $80 – $90 and will be available for purchase starting today at AKID.
“When I became a mother it was really important to me to support other mothers that are entrepreneurs, that follow their dreams and created that which inspired them,” said Jaime King
“When I discovered AKID it was truly extraordinary. From the moment my sons slipped on those shoes, they refused to wear anything else. AKID’s brilliant designs, fantastic details, and edgy vibes are unbelievable; that they do it without sacrificing practical comfort and the rough and tumble nature of youth is no small feat. Collaborating with AKID was effortless and joyful. I am honored that Ashleigh would bring me into her beautiful universe to create a collection that speaks to the happiness and wild freedom of what our children embody.”
