    NEW! Fitted Hawaii weekend releases 

    After dropping their collabo piece with Eighty Four Skate, the Fitted Ohana take the skateboarding thing another notch with the release of this new pack.  First up is a foam billed snap-back trucker.  The graphic features a collage consisting of stickers collected from the past 25 years. See if you can recognize some of the stickers in there. Foam brim, white snapback. Yes kids, the trucker is back because it never really left.

    Next up is a black tanktop to combat this heater weather we’ve been having. The tanktop uses a graphic from the Blood, Sweat and Tears release. A Fitted crest marks the left chest of the tanktop. FInally, the same graphic used on the trucker hat is used as the fill for this new FITTED shop shirt. Very nice.

    Finally, there’s a new online only release of a shirt called “One Day Alone.” This shirt features a beachfront fill on a white shirt. Super clean.

    The trucker, logo shirt and tanktop are available today at the Fitted Hawaii Kona St. headquarters. The One Day Alone shirt is an online exclusive only available at Fitted’s online store.

    NEW! Product (RED) x Converse x Ian Ginoza 

    So, if you recall about a couple of years ago, the Kicks/HI crew teamed up with famed Aloha Shirt maker Sig Zane for a collaboration Chuck Taylor that was made specifically for Product (RED).

    Flash forward to 2009 and Product (RED) and Converse teamed up for the Hund(RED) Artist Program where the company teamed up and collaborated with 100 artists for shoe projects for Product (RED). Ian Ginoza, co-founder of Kicks/HI, was invited to be a part of this project.

    This is his contribution.

    It’s a white, 3-velcro strapped Jack Purcell. The shoe is covered in a gorgeous white epi leather upper with red highlights throughout. The inspiration behind this shoe is white blood cells, which are the agents in the body that fight off infectious diseases.

    There were only 500 pairs created, with only 250 slated for release in the US. Kicks/HI has been blessed to sell these this Saturday, along with a special 20 pair drop on the Kicks/HI online shop.

    The in-store selling of these shoes will be at the Makaloa location ONLY starting this Saturday. The online pairs will also be available Saturday, starting at 11am Hawaii time.

    This shoe will also be available at Kicks/HI+GUAM and St. Alfred in Chicago.

    For more info on this shoe and information on the release, check out Kicks/HI.

    NEW! Fitted Hawaii x eightyFOURskate 

    The Fitted Ohana have teamed up with Eighty Four Skate to celebrate the beginning of the school year.  Yeah, I know… beginning of the school year isn’t something to celebrate, but when you’re dropping hot product like this, it’s something to be excited about.

    Besides the big news that the Kamahele backpacks have re-upped at Fitted AND Eighty Four Skate, they’ve collaborated on this new shirt.

    Legendary gold tri-locks adorn the front with an “ASD” logo on the right sleeve, Fitted crest on the left.

    The back hit features the Fitted crown chillin atop the Eighty Four Skate logo.

    Overall, a dope shirt for the back to school grind.

    You can scoop up this shirt, plus the Kamahele re-up, at both Fitted Hawaii and Eighty Four Skate.

    soul clap

    It’s the last Friday of the month. Seriously, that only means one thing: SOUL CLAP.

    So, the good vibes are coming straight from the East Coast to Chinatown this Friday night.

    Along with the good vibes will be the always present Honolulu Bird Gang aka the Nocturnal Sound Krew: Jami, Compose, Ssssolution, and Eskae

    Soul Clap usually reaches capacity, but this one should get there fairly quickly. So, don’t get caught and make sure you RSVP.

    This party is 21+ and the stairway up to thirtyninehotel opens up at 9pm.

    For more info, check out DJ Eskae.
