When you think of a fabric that represents the United States, denim should be the first to come to mind. The inspiration behind this project was to represent the hard work that went into making Kith happen and our road to becoming a staple American retail shop/brand. The selvedge denim represents the brown room in our flagship SoHo store which is made of original 1950 bricks, 150 year old wood and American steel. Selvedge denim has always meant “toughness” to me. When I thought of the one year anniversary for Kith, I wanted to create a shoe with the brand I have the most history with and put out a shoe that represented the hard work that went into making Kith possible. By mixing the American colors red and white leather with navy selvedge denim, I believe we achieved just that with a timeless denim trainer. To wrap up the full selvedge denim upper, the shoe also includes standard Gel cushioning and leather panel stripes.

The Ronnie Fieg x ASICS “Selvedge” Gel Lyte III will be available at Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com. The shoes will release December 14th, 2012 at 11am EST retailing for $145 USD.

To purchase in-store, swing by either Kith NYC location to put your name on a list for an opportunity to purchase this Friday, December 14th, 2012.

After a highly successful and sold out Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Kin by Ronnie and Batshi Fieg is finally back with new and updated styles. The small line of accessories builds on the close knit relationship between the Kith team and our customers as I reached out to a very important Kith member for this project, my mother Batshi Fieg. Kin is the second part of the phrase “Kith and Kin” which means friends and family and I’m proud to present the latest collection from the line.

Each piece is entirely handmade in my old Queens, New York neighborhood using semi-precious stones, corals, real bone, natural wood with optional signature 14k plated gold beads. The bracelets come strung together on elastic bands making them appropriate for any size, and because of the amount of styles offered they can be mixed and matched in dozens of combinations. The Fall/Winter 2012 collection of bracelets will be available in limited quantities at KithNYC.com and Kith Manhattan starting today for $40 USD or $55 USD. The line of bracelets will be sold in multiple sizes and will only be exclusively at Kith.

The Ronnie Fieg x Dr. Martens capsule collection for Fall/Winter 2012 returns with chapter 2 this week. After the highly successful chapter 1 launch of the Rivington brogue and Bowery boot, we are now ready to bring back the two styles in new colorways and materials. The camo theme stays consistent throughout both chapters with chapter 1 featuring a cloud camo and this chapter featuring a custom woodland pattern in rich suedes. The new Black/Camo Rivington brogue ($175 USD) , and a slim fitting Bowery boot ($200) will be available in camo suede and oxblood smooth leather. Both styles include all-over brogue detailing, air-cushioned in-soles and Goodyear-welted soles beneath for slip-resistance. The Goodyear leather welts are made of premium saddle tan leather adds a nice element of quality on an already premium style.

The second and final chapter of the Ronnie Fieg x Dr. Martens Fall/Winter 2012 capsule collection will launch Friday December 8th, 2012 with the Rivington Brogue in Black/Camo and the Bowery Boot Oxblood/Camo. Both styles will be available at both Kith locations and online at, RonnieFieg.com starting at 11am EST in limited quantities.

The latest release from the Ronnie Fieg for Sebago Fall/Winter 2012 collection are two new Iroquois Lux boots ready to ease the transition of Fall to Winter. The popular style returns with its staple handsewn construction in olive and denim color choices. The olive colorway is built with a full nubuck upper that’s soft to the touch, while the denim option features a denim designed front and smooth nubuck rear. Both styles sit on Vibram soles that offer the stability needed as the temperature drops. Key details include a removable fringe collar allowing the boot to be worn with any style and durable leather laces bringing to all together. The Ronnie Fieg for Sebago Fall/Winter 2012 Iroquois boots will retail for $180 USD and are available starting today at RonnieFieg.com while quantities last.

The “Total Eclipse/Leather Toes” are dropping this Saturday. The materials and colorway help us transition comfortably into this time of the year. The premium nubuck and leather chosen for production are a bit thicker than leathers used on my previous ASICS releases to accommodate for colder climates. The color blocking is similar to the previous “Leather Back” release, one of my favorite designs, where the toe is a separate color and material from the rest of the shoe. The Gel Lyte III features a split tongue entrance laced with red/black round laces to bring out the body’s coloring. The concept behind the “Total Eclipse” was to use the darkest shade of navy and have the actual effect of an Eclipse, where the colors go from very dark to pitch black. The hit of red helps differentiate between navy and black, breaking up the colors up in a subtle way.

You can purchase the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte III “Total Eclipse/Leather Toes” at Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com for $145 USD starting this Saturday, November 10th at 11am EST.

Easily one of my favorite projects of this year, the Ronnie Fieg x Dr. Martens capsule collection for Fall/Winter 2012 has finally arrived. Part 1 of the collection will feature a Rivington brogue ($175 USD) in a nubuck silhouette with camo suede mix in Navy/Camo, and a slim fitting Bowery boot in all over Camo suede. The shoe can easily fit into any wardrobe this season as a great menswear footwear addition to your lineup. Both styles include brogue-detailing and insoles that are comfortably air-cushioned, while beneath you’ll find Goodyear-welted soles for slip-resistance. The PVC Goodyear welt build uses a strip of PVC that carries the distinctive yellow thread stitched by a machinist onto the upper.

The first release of the Ronnie Fieg x Dr. Martens Fall/Winter 2012 capsule collection will launch November 2nd, 2012 with the Rivington Brogue in Navy/Camo and the Bowery Boot in all over Camo. Both will be available at Kith NYC and RonnieFieg.com starting at 11am EST.
