Nike‘s classic Air Trainer SC is brought back in the classic “Auburn” make up. Bo Jackson’s iconic sneaker is re-designed with a mostly white upper offset with hits of purple and orange. The leather upper features perforations at toe for enhanced ventilation and a solid rubber outsole for durable traction. Check out the athletic shoe at Kith NYC stores or by phone order today at 646.648.6285 for $110 USD.
The Nike Dunk design has been given a lift with the wedge version for women. The classic silhouette remains intact with the same iconic details and athletic look, with now an added internal wedge. The full textile upper is offset with an all-over white spotted graphic. A full-length EVA midsole is added for lightweight cushioning and impact absorption. The Nike WMNS Dunk Sky Hi is available in two new colorways for $125 USD at Kith Manhattan or by phone order at 646-648-6285.
Ronnie Fieg and Caminando team up once again after multiple successful collaborations, this time for two Officer Boots. Each boot is handmade in Mexico from the finest factories and skilled craftsmen for a perfect fit and distinctive appearance, something that cannot be accomplished from machine-made footwear. The contemporary boot is a more dressier model by the Tokyo brand and comes with an 8-hole design and quick lace-up system. The all brown colorway features a soft nubuck upper, while the black colorway comes in a smooth 3H leather build. Underneath sits sturdy Goodyear welted natural crepe soles for long lasting use, while more key additions include an embossed Kith branded tongue, leather lining and long rawhide laces. Both boots are available today in limited quantities for $220 USD exclusively at Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com.
I’m proud to present the Ronnie Fieg for Asics, GT-II “High Risk”. The name “High Risk” stems from the red Pantone used for the accents on this shoe, and the all over purple and red colorway was a big design risk for me. I barely use purple in my designs and i always felt it was a tricky color to get right. Using a unique purple shade and nicely blended red, I felt the design was really pushing the the envelope on the GT-II. The result was outstanding shoe that uses a soft pigskin front and leather build on the back. Underneath the side strips is a standout 3M fabrication, along with cotton lining and a tongue featuring perforated leather. Beneath sits Gel cushioning technology and a red sole wrapping it all together. You can check out the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS GT-II “High Risk” on the shelves at Kith NYC stores right now in very limited quantities for $145 USD. The shoe was previously released online yesterday via a Kith NYC Kithstrike and has since sold out. There will be no phone orders, in-store only.
adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott returns with all new JS Nizza, JS Letters, JS Wings, Instinct Hi, JS Poodle and JS Streetball sneakers.
Jeremy Scott has added his own eccentric twist to the popular adidas Originals Nizza mid-top once again. The upper now features a naturally breathable canvas with leather and canvas lining. The key points on the shoe are the jagged edges on the heel that are designed to give the style a unique high-speed look.
The adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott Letters turn the name “adidas” into a bold all-over pattern. The style splits up the name with “ADI” on the left and “DAS” on the right shoe. The style is made from premium leather and features a textile lining, a cushioned rubber midsole and a tough rubber outsole.
The JS Wings style from adidas Originals sees a new colorway in metallic rainbow. Upgraded with a vibrant foil leather upper, the shoe uses wings as its signature detail. The shoe features a blue base with glitter stripes in pink, orange, purple and green. Below sits an EVA midsole for long-term, lightweight cushioning attached to a tough rubber outsole with shimmering particles.
The adidas Originals Instinct Hi returns in a new all-over multiplaid colorway. Key details include over-sized branding on the tongue and deep padded collar. Below sits a lightweight cushioned rubber outsole.
No stranger to incorporating animals on his shoes, Jeremy Scott and adidas Originals present the JS Poodle. The shoe features a soft poodle head on the tongue, outfitted with white sunglasses, long fur and a pom-pom tail. The shoe is made from two-tone short pile and curly textile fur. Additional comfort is seen with its soft terry lining and an EVA midsole.
The traditional adidas Originals JS Street Ball comes in a barrage of colors and prints. Featuring a pearlized snake print leather on the vamp, other prints include zebra and ponyhair on the collar mixed with colors. The shoe features mesh on the tongue, leather accenting and transulcent textured paneling.
February sees a new adidas ZX Trainer Mid and two updated colorways of the adidas Spezial. First up is the dynamic adidas ZX Trainer Mid ($110 USD) featuring a mostly two-tone grey upper with turquoise adidas stripes. A textured glossy heel and internal lacing system add a contemporary look to the sneaker, while a perforated toe box and textured mesh tongue wrap it all together. The staple adidas Spezial ($75 USD) model is taken over by bold Black/Orange and Red/Black colorways. The upper is made entirely of suede and features extra padding throughout, most notably on the collar and tongue. Below sits a removable cushioned Eva insole for comfort and a branded non-marking rubber outsole for traction. Available today, you can purchase all three styles at Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com while supplies last.
The adidas SLVR brand unleashes four sleek new models for February. First up is the adidas SLVR Concept runner made up of an almost entirely mesh upper to allow the shoe to conform exactly to your foot. The upper sits on a two piece white sole for maximum flexibility. The adidas SLVR Base is an athletic inspired boot with a canvas upper that includes a cap toe in leather with an elastic strap across the laces for stability and fit. A deeply textured white rubber outsole offers traction and an athletic look. Next up is the AR-10 Runner, a low profile silhouette constructed from neoprene and fused technology to create an active base. A narrow sole is supported by cross-quarter leather strips to help with impact distribution. Finally comes the basketball-inspired adidas SLVR Cupsole, which is made up of premium soft leather and features modern detailing like a silver trimmed tongue and full-width heel tab. The shoe sits on a classic Campus outsole and is finished with a velcro strap collar. These new styles are available now at Kith NYC locations and KithNYC.com ranging from $150 USD to $200 USD.
The second edition of the Nike Powerlines model brings together a full mesh and synthetic nubuck upper. The shoes feature a tonal upper broken up by contrast flywires and lining, while additional features include a hidden Dynamic Flywire system for comfort. The upper sits on top of a classic Free sole unit and is available in both a Dark Obsidian and Atomic Teal option. The shoes are available now at Kith NYC stores or by phone order at 646.648.6285 for $100 USD.
