Kicks is a skunk character who first appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk. If seen in the city, he would shine your shoes for 500 bells, which would change them. He then made a reappearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Here, he ran a shoe shop which would open after players had spent 8,000 Bells at the Able Sisters, and lived in the town for ten days. You may therefore be wondering whether he will make an appearance on your island. He will, and here’s how to meet Kicks in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
When And Where He Appears
The only requirement for Kicks to appear on your island is to have upgraded the Residents Services tent into a building. From then onwards, he can be found in the plaza once a week, where he has his own stall. Like Label, the day of the week that he appears is random. Additionally, it seems that he has no intention of setting up a shop like the Able Sisters. Instead, he can be considered a travelling merchant like Sahara and Daisy-Mae (minus the wandering around).
What He Sells
At his stall players can buy shoes, socks and leggings. These are all clothing items that can also be bought at the Able Sisters store. However, you’ll definitely want to check out his shop whenever you see him in the plaza. This is because he also sells backpacks and bags, which are items that can’t be bought from the other shops.
