Former Nike Manager Pleads Guilty To Selling Thousands of Stolen Sneakers

In April, former Nike employees Kyle Yamaguchi and Tung Ho allegedly made hundreds of thousands of dollars by flipping sneakers from Nike’s own inventory. Today, Yamaguchi pleaded guilty to transport, receive and sell the goods for shipping a total of 42 pairs to a Florida-based sneaker aficionado named Jason Michael Keating. Keating bought more than 630 limited edition models — which were stolen between 2012 – 2013 — that amounted to an estimate of $680,000 USD. Yamaguchi is set to pay $50,000 USD in criminal forfeiture, only a small sum compared to the earnings from his scandal, along with five years of probation instead of five years of jail time. During his stint at Nike between 2006 – 2012, Yamaguchi ordered sample pairs from China to Nike’s headquarters, before flipping them to Keating. Once Yamaguchi left Nike to start his own sunglasses brand LOOK/SEE (which ironically, is the name given to sample pairs), Ho took his position as promotional manager playing the role as middle man in the operation.

KITH 2014 Holiday “New York Natives” Lookbook featuring Mobb Deep

Coinciding with this weekend’s release of the collaborative Ronnie Fieg x PONY M-110 is the latest "New York Natives" collection from KITH. An apt follow-up to last year’s release, the latest "New York Natives" drop once again draws inspiration from a specific time and place: 1996, the prime of hip-hop and street culture in the Big Apple. Appropriately modeled here by Havoc and Prodigy of Mobb Deep, the collection is marked by multi-paneled pieces, vintage colo-blocking, and retro logos.
The KITH "New York Natives" Collection will release this Saturday, December 20 at 11 a.m. EST at the new KITH shop at 644 Broadway, KITH’s Brooklyn storefront at 233 Flatbush Ave, and online at KithNYC.com.
