Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, King Charles discovered Footwork at the age of 14, and within a year had decided to pursue the style and culture to the fullest. Where most people would have been satisfied with dancing only after work, school, or at parties, Charles devoted every waking moment to the pursuit of his art, eventually forming a crew with three of his neighborhood friends that would grow to become the largest Chicago Footwork organization in the world: Creation Global.
Not content to simply be confined in one area, however, King Charles has spent the last decade building bridges between the dance of his home town and numerous other street styles; from House, to Hip-Hop, to Popping, and everything in between. It was this expansion that inevitably lead to his signature event, Footwork Frenzy, a battle where Footworkers of all styles and cultures meet to trade rhythms and kick feet.
Throughout his decades-long career, King Charles has never settled for the expectations of others, and is always striving to use his voice and message to uplift dancers and non-dancers alike. KCF Clothing is an extension of this mission. We proudly present to you an apparel brand that represents the ingenuity, creativity, and passion of Footwork culture, and hope you join us in expanding all that Footwork can be.
"Ever since I was a kid, I've always wanted to send motivating messages, both to my friends and people that I just met along the way. Since everyone comprehends things differently, however, I've decided to speak through my actions instead. KCF Clothing is a direct connection to a life-long journey of actions.
Wear and show what you want to say." -King Charles
