Over the years my friends have continually asked me to re-release some of my previous projects. The Cove and Mint Leaf ASICS Gel Lyte III’s from year’s past were released before I was able to open Kith. I would never simply re-release or “retro” one of my releases, so when the Gel Lyte V came along it was the perfect opportunity to recreate some of my favorite creations on one of my all time favorite silhouettes.

Both the Cove and Mint Leaf Gel Lyte V’s mirror the same materials as its Gel Lyte III predecessor. The Cove Gel Lyte V features premium nubuck with pigskin perforated underlays, while details include 3M accents, a neoprene sockliner for a comfortable glove-like fit and tonal branding throughout. The Mint Leaf Gel Lyte V features the same buttery nubuck with breathable mesh paneling. A neoprene sockliner and tonal branding are also added. Both colorways are fitted on contrasting off-white midsoles and grey outsoles that add an extra pop. The shoes are tied together with two flat laces and two options of rope laces for each colorway.

Priced at $160 USD per shoe, pick up the Gel Lyte V Cove and Mint Leaf at KithNYC.com on Saturday, April 5th, 2014 at 11am EST.

The Quilted RF-Mid took only a few rounds to perfect. Each pair came out in such a high grade that it was an easy choice to produce three colorways of it when I finally held them in my hands. The shoe is a custom silhouette designed with Filling Pieces that was created specifically for this project, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. The Ronnie Fieg x Filling Pieces Quilted RF-Mid is fully handmade in Portugal and features a smooth quilted leather upper with premium pig skin lining. A top to bottom tonal look goes down to the waxed laces, with only a contrasting tan interior. Each colorway is limited to only 200 pieces in all and comes accompanied with custom Kith wooden shoe trees, a Kith branded box and a Kith drawstring dust bag.

All three shoes will release alongside the new Stampd pop-up across from Kith Manhattan at 66 Bleecker St. and Kith Brooklyn on Saturday, March 8th, 2014. They will also release online on Monday, March 10th, 2014 at 11am EST at KithNYC.com.

There are few times throughout my 17 years in this industry that I’ve found myself speechless over product. The Buscemi 100mm was one of those times. Jon and I go back a few years and I always respected him for understanding product and design, but this was different. When passion takes over in any circumstance, you end up with undeniable outcomes. It’s the element that raises the bar and helps bridge ideas and execution. I was there to hear about the Buscemi brand from the very beginning. The way Jon was describing the process turned me into a supporting fan without even having to see the final product, seeing it was just an added bonus. So after blowing out of 3 shipments of his original 100mm, we find ourselves here. In my opinion this is one of the greatest fashion sneakers I have ever seen. It’s not because I worked on the shoe, or because I need this to be some type of promotion. It’s because every element from conceptualization to production, every element of this project executed perfectly. The leather, hardware, craftsmanship and uniqueness make this shoe worth more than the price tag. For those that appreciate quality and originality, we give you this masterpiece.

The Ronnie Fieg x Buscemi 100mm sneaker is unisex styled, arriving in a Veg Tan/Rose Gold colorway. Each shoe is fully handcrafted in Civitanove, Italy, and hand sewn with un-dyed vegtan calfskin leather with a vachetta liner and footbed. The 18k rose gold plated hardware was designed custom for this project, including the signature Buscemi lock and key in rose gold. The Veg Tan strap and buckle also come with a screwdriver for easy removable access. Custom branding is featured on the tongue to finish the look. The Ronnie Fieg x Buscemi 100mm sneaker will release in extremely limited quantities on Friday, February 14th, 2014 at 11am EST at the Kith 66 Bleecker St. shop, Kith Brooklyn and KithNYC.com for $800 USD.

2012 marked the first PUMA and Ronnie Fieg project, successfully launching the Disc Blaze OG “Cove” to an eager market of sneaker aficionados. It is no coincidence that this season, for the second time, we worked on the Disc Blaze.

The PUMA Disc Blaze compliments the unique and complex construction of the human foot. In order to achieve the highest possible performance and comfort, it is essential that a shoe fits the individual foot to support and control, without limiting the natural freedom of movement. The groundbreaking PUMA Disc System meets this challenge and forms the perfect synthesis of foot and shoe. One of the most successful styles in the range is the Disc Blaze that features Trinomic technology, was launched in 1992. The Disc Blaze is harnessed by PUMA’s signature no-lace, Disc closure system from the early Trinomic era.

This season the Ronnie Fieg x Puma Disc Blaze COA gives the early 1990s running favorite an appropriately luxurious look and feel, with a new toe shape, reconstructed vamp and added mudguard. The Disc Blaze comes in two carefully selected and complementary colorways, Mint and Coral. Both feature pebbled black leather, 1H coral brushed nubuck, premium leather, 3M branding and 3M speckled midsoles.

In conjunction with the Disc Blaze COA drop, we have also partnered on a special store overseas. The KITH Coat of Arms pop-up will be open for 7 days throughout Men’s Fashion Week in the heart of Paris.

The PUMA Disc Blaze COA will launch at the COA pop up in Paris which will be open from January 16th to 22nd at 23 Rue De Roi De Sicile. The store will be open from 11am-7pm.

To purchase the Ronnie Fieg x PUMA Disc Blaze COA shoes, Kith will be distributing tickets to those in line starting January 15th at 10am on a first come, first serve basis with a scheduled time to shop the following day for the shoes. Kith will be handing out 84 tickets per day for an opportunity to purchase a pair of the Ronnie Fieg x PUMA shoes on the following day with a valid ticket. Daily updates will be sent out via Twitter (@KithSet) when all the tickets are given out for that day. With a ticket, customers will be allowed to purchase one pair of Ronnie Fieg x PUMA Disc Blaze COA shoes with only one colorway per ticket as well as the full Kith COA collection. The shoes will retail for 165 Euros.

Kith is pleased to present its latest exclusive RF Design Timberland.

Adjusted to meet contemporary requirements, the Ronnie Fieg x Timberland 6” 40 Below presents a fresh new image of a certified classic. Intelligently designed and beautifully crafted, the boot introduces a new level of considered luxury to the four-decade long legacy of Timberland. With reverence to the character of the original Super Boot, Ronnie Fieg and Timberland have built, through collaboration, a new icon. Dropped four inches, the rugged 40 Below now matches the classic 6″ workboot in height. It is a boot that represents the past, present, and future of Timberland.

Following the return of the indestructible Super Boot in celebration of Timberland’s 40th Anniversary collection, Ronnie Fieg pays homage to its history and the legacy of NYC’s 8th street shoe shops. Originally produced in 1979 to withstand harsh working conditions, the 40 Below reached cult status when worn by Tupac’s renegade character Bishop in the 1992 film, Juice. Two years later, Fieg began working as a stock-boy at an 8th street shoe shop serving customers with a footwear selection that exceeded expectations.

On 8th street, people reached for items like the Super Boot and turned hardwearing footwear into street icons. Largely unheralded in the pantheon of New York City shopping districts, the short stretch between 6th and 5th Avenues defined the city’s footwear trends and became a mecca for celebrities and day-trippers alike. Today, Kith honors the tradition of 8th Street shoe sellers by offering a similar escape from the retail norm and goes a step further—taking a hand in designing future classics that meld tried and true style with advanced functionality.

The Ronnie Fieg x Timberland 6” 40 Below comes in three colors. The first, a Butter Pecan nubuck ($250 USD), recalls the Classic 6” Timberland but surprises with every detail. Lined to the toe with sheepskin, the Butter Pecan boot reimagines the utilitarian Super Boot with an opulent, street savvy look. It is complemented by two sumptuous suede offerings — Cinnamon and Plum in color ($220 USD) — which keep the typical 200g primaloft lining associated with the Super Boot and are lined with a smooth, super-soft cow leather. All boots are fitted with the brass d-ring and hook hardwear and decorated with distinctive “RF” embossing on the lateral side below the collar and tongue. Dual-branded hangtags and Kith-branded lace locks finish the look.

In all, Fieg’s design retains the traditional elements of the 40 Below—ultra-warm lining and that unmistakable stacked collar—and transforms it through contemporary, luxury fabrication. It is an example of recognizing the integral elements of a good product and bridging a gap between style and function. The objective is two-fold: First, solve a problem presented by a gap in the market and second, employ fabric and hardware selections that elevate the finished product. The RF x Timberland 6” 40 Below pulls from the unparalleled history of the New Hampshire-based brand and further entrenches the company in the trajectory of function-born street fashion. Highlighting the strengths of both parties, the boot is a triumph of true collaboration.

All three boots will launch exclusively at the new Kith pop-up shop at 66 Bleecker Street (between Broadway and Crosby), as well as at Kith Brooklyn and KithNYC.com on December 14th at 11am EST. Due to the fact that each boot style is limited to only 250 pieces, there will be a strict 1 piece per product/size per customer.
