Last week marked the opening of the Kith courtyard, a special area made from Brazilian walnut wood and mirror polished steel, a heritage/future feel that brings our two-room concept together. The “Americana” 577 helps bridge the gap between our two rooms, the Americana heritage space and our avant-garde futuristic space.

The upper on the Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 577 “Americana” is made from two shades of pig skin suede that esthetically looks like denim but actually feels like a rich and oily pig skin. It’s a leather that I have yet to see anywhere and was very excited to apply to the 577 silhouette. The shoe also consists of navy 3M details, debossed patches on the tongue, navy cotton lining, co-branded footbeds and three sets of custom laces.

The shoe will drop at a random time today on Kithnyc.com for $160 USD and will be limited to one pair per person. They will not release in the Kith shops today.
