I present to you the exclusive Ronnie Fieg x New Balance “Steel Blue” 999 sneakers. After showing you the sample process earlier last week, the final result features a mixed premium nubuck, pigskin suede and leather accented upper inspired by the popular New Balance 1300CL model. Details include debossed heel and tongue New Balance branding, a soft leather tongue, ABZORB cushioning, “Just Us” written on the eyelets and the Kith logo imprinted on the insoles. Each pair comes with a Kith/New Balance leather hangtag and three pairs of laces in white, grey and ice. The release will be available in limited quantities at Kith Manhattan, Kith Brooklyn and online at KithNYC.com for $130 USD.
This Friday also marks the release of the Kith x New Balance apparel capsule collection, featuring hoodies, crewnecks, sweat shorts and sweatpants. Each piece is expertly handmade in New York City using grey and blue french terry fabrics with Kith x New Balance branding, leather tagging and drawstring tightening on the shorts and pants.
To mark the special release, 100 handmade wooden boxes will also be available on a first come first serve basis at Kith NYC locations. The wooden box pack is priced at $290 USD and contains the 999 “Steel Blue” shoes, the hoodie and the sweat shorts from the limited edition Kith x New Balance handsewn capsule collection. 50 boxes will be at Kith Manhattan and 50 boxes will be at Kith Brooklyn.
