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.
To purchase in-store, swing by either Kith NYC location to put your name on a list for an opportunity to purchase this Saturday, November 10th.
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.
Today I’m excited to share with you a few pieces from Chapter 2 of the Kith Blue Label line. Part of this shoot we did with Justin Doss, the Fashion Editor over at GQ. Justin’s been working in fashion forever and like me he came from sales where he started at Sid Mashburn in Atlanta by working with customers one on one. With his experience, he then started working at Barneys as a buyer and helped on the Private Label collection. Today, Justin has his finger on the pulse in a way that no one else has. I consider Justin one of the best-dressed guys in New York by the way he wears pieces in ways that are different from what you would imagine. That is what fashion is all about: using garments to express your own point of view. In the meantime, stay tuned for more release information for Chapter 2 coming later this week.
Justin is wearing the Bedford Oxford in Herringbone, the Mercer Pant in Navy, and RF X New Balance 1300 “Salmon Sole.”
The first drops from the Ronnie Fieg for Sebago Fall/Winter 2012 collection have just landed. First up, the line presents two luxury Seneca boots ($150 USD) in all black Horween leather and grey nubuck. Although two different material offerings, both products come laced with rawhide laces and corrosive-resistant Sebago eyelets. Key details include whip stitching on the toebox, a branded leather plug on the bottom of the shoe and a reworked Campside sole. Next are two Bleeker boots ($180 USD), one in all brown Horween leather and the other in all grey nubuck. The boot stands comfortably on a long lasting Vibram sole and features leather lining and leather pull tabs. The style includes full brogue detailing throughout that’s set for any occasion. As with all Sebago products, you can expect a true handsewn construction that’s built last. You can find the Ronnie Fieg for Sebago Fall/Winter 2012 Seneca boots and Bleeker boots at RonnieFieg.com today and Kith NYC stores starting Wednesday, October 31st.
Ronnie Fieg presents the Made in USA New Balance “Salmon Sole” 1300. The limited edition shoe features a full navy nubuck upper, mixed with a grey nubuck branded heel and a smooth leather tongue. Color highlights include teal New Balance branding, white under panels and midsoles, and salmon colored soles, insoles and tongue tag detailing. Mixes of navy mesh padding can be found along the nubuck body and covering the toebox. Underneath, you’ll find a well-cushioned ENCAP midsole for shock and stability reduction.
Also available will be a Kith x Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen Lined Varsity Jacket. The jacket is made of 100% cotton with both a button and zip-up front. Details include quilted lining, vents on the back and “Just Us” Kith branding embroidered on the inside pocket.
