Akid x Jaime King

The Akid x Jaime King Capsule Collection was released on October 2017 and James Knight was part of the campaign.

“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,” Jaime said in a statement. “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 [AKID co-founder] Ashleigh [Dempster] would bring me into her beautiful universe to create a collection that speaks to the happiness and wild freedom of what our children embody.”

Styles include slip-on sneakers and lace-up boots decorated with whimsical details such as pompoms and removable foxtails.

The color palette focuses on rich autumnal shades such as burgundy, olive, purple and navy. Each shoe is adorned with a custom hangtag designed by King’s own young sons, James Knight, 4, and Leo Thames, 2.

Priced from $80 to $90, The seven shoe styles are available for purchase at akidbrand.com since Oct. 19, 2017.
