Big admirers of like minded folk across the pond – Kicks to the Pitch a fresh online magazine and live event production company—held their website launch party at BAIT in Diamond Bar, California recently.
Joining forces with fellow preachers of the cultured and artistic side of the game we all love so damn dearly, the party was co-hosted by BAIT and Bumpy Pitch FC.
Featuring live music from DJ Episodes; free tacos and beverages provided by D’USSE and Hubert’s Lemonade; art displays from 8 by 8 Magazine, The Transhoeformer and Bumpy Pitch FC; as well as an EA Sports FIFA 15 tournament. It quite literally had it all.
The event was attended by various people within the sneaker and lifestyle industry and the reception of the concept was welcomed with high regards. Live music set the tone and created a solid atmosphere where the attendees spoke about various topics from who was the best player on the pitch right now to the new adidas Yeezy release.
The combination of the football and lifestyle – creating that perfect blend was packed with plenty of goodness.
The two level event hosted the upstairs lifestyle soccer gallery with items such as the Mambacurials signed by Kobe himself, Custom Kicks to the Pitch Kits to match the Clark Kent 112 packs and the Nike Safari packs.
Limited edition art work from the first few years of the FIFA video games as well as a very unique display of vintage soccer kits and limited sneakers on display from Project Blitz.
Most brilliantly, to commemorate the launch of the site Kicks to the Pitch partnered with BAIT and Bumpy Pitch FC to create the blackout collection: A capsule featuring an all black Nike soccer jersey with black reflective branding on the front and back and a black Flexfit snapback cap with black embroidery.
The collection was released at the launch party and will be available at the pop-up space inside BAIT curated by Bumpy Pitch FC and Kicks to the Pitch that will be inside the BAIT store in Diamond Bar through the month of March. This limited edition collection will be available to purchase online at baitme.com and bumpypitch.com starting 3rd of March.
I think you’ll agree – utterly sublime. Looking forward to linking up with Kicks to the Pitch a plenty over the coming months.
