British Knights were a dope shoe that had the late 1980s and early 1990s on lock-down. BK's were not for the faint hearted - they sported massive decals, plastic add-ons and had tongues bigger than oven mitts. They were particularly popular with basketballers, crip gangbangers and homeboys. Its rumoured that 76% of hip hop and techno artists during the 1990s wore British Knights at one time or the other. The remaining 24% wore a combination of adidas, puma, Troop and SPX.
British Knights fell off after the golden age of hip hop era ended - largely in part due to idiots claiming nike was a better brand. These idiots have so far eluded the old skool police, but when they are caught, they will experience large amounts of pain for their silly views.
