The first quarter of 2023 has seen us cement our link up with Franklin Boateng - the KING OF TRAINERS - on a multi-layered project to pay it forward within the culture - delivering the best selection of garms both online and in-store, exclusive styling guides, codes and offers as well as workshops to connect influencers with some of the biggest social platforms in the world.
At the bricks and mortar level we teamed up with KOT’s RXTRO imprint at Boxpark Shoreditch with an exclusive KING takeover weekend and you will now be able to purchase from the store a special selection of curated KING products permanently every month, with stock selections and one away’s changing all of the time.
If you can’t get down to the ‘ditch and you prefer shopping whilst laying in bed, then understand we’ve got you covered. We have now launched an exclusive KOT store on the KING website - hit this link - again with a curated line of products personally selected and worn by the man himself. Legit sneaker heads know - Franklin is only choosing the elite pieces and every one has gotta tick the crep hook-up box. It’s all fire, get involved.
The end of last month also saw us link on the first EXPANDYOURBRAND seminar workshop. A FREE event located at ROXANNE opposite the store and organised by KOT’s influencer agency RXTRO Agency. The invite only format connects everyone who has an interest in building their social profile with brands on every level to leverage their commercial potential - with the intention of turning their social content into a career path.
Hosted by Franklin, the panel consisted of key players from the TIK TOK store team as well as founder of KING - Tim Hoad and CEO of Bad Orange PR - Walter Gbedze, dropping gems on the relationship between influencers, brands and the social platforms that connects these two things. The workshop event is scheduled to become a monthly face to face staple with additional online seminars also hosted for those looking for extra nuggets on building their online equity. Hit up Franklin on his social media platforms below to get on the inside with all of that, as more guest speakers and hosts are lined up for each monthly edition.
