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.
