K8IROS 8.1 — Jesse Owens
K8IROS 8.1 x Kickasso collaboration features the legendary James Cleveland Owens, affectionally known as Jesse. Speed, agility, tenacity, grit, and sheer talent allowed this Cleveland resident to break world records, take home gold medals, and become the greatest athlete in track and field history. A depiction of this trailblazer’s 1936 Summer Olympics performance adorns the heel of the K8IROS 8.1 with the USA’s red, white, and blue colors striped along the sides of the shoe. This edition highlights a moment in time where despite representing a country that didn’t accept him based on his race and competing in front of a world that felt the same, Jesse achieved undisputable success on the biggest stage in sports.
This shoe was game worn by Spencer Dinwiddie on October 24, 2018 during the Brooklyn Nets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers matchup at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, OH.
