The Kith East Coast Project takes the collaboration concept far beyond expectations. This speciality collection features standout custom-created headwear, outerwear, shirts, luggage and eyewear that each carry iconic team colors representing two distinct cities. Partners like Play Cloths, Just Don, Golden Bear, Stance, Stampd, Herschel Supply Co. and Tina Catherine have all worked closely with Kith to create a carefully curated range of ‘New York City’ and ‘Miami Beach’ themed pieces. Made to complement one another as well as operate individually, each item captures the spirit of the two cities on the same coast with very different paces, but with a shared taste. Limited quantities have been available at the Kith Miami pop-up store from May 2nd to May 10th, following with a Manhattan and Brooklyn launch at Kith locations as well as online at at 11am EST on May 10th.

adidas Originals and Opening Ceremony present their latest collaboration which combines the sport and lifestyle silhouettes with fashion forward designs that celebrate the best of both worlds. Here is the New York Runner  model featuring very dynamic and versatile build. The low-top runner is features a neoprene liner on top and details such as a fast lace system and trail inspired laces. Check out the shoes now at Kith NYC stores and for $175 USD.

Hitting newsstands March 12th, New York Magazine presents their annual ‘Best of New York 2012′ issue. The cover is done by artist Steve Powers (also known as ESPO) who beat out Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller, Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summers, and illustrator Christoph Niemann. It’s an honor to be selected in the “Best Sneakers” category for the magazine where they did a writeup on Kith Brooklyn. Check out the writeup below:

“Just down the block from the forthcoming Barclays Center, this men’s shoe store has sneakers for sporty, splashy, and understated sensibilities. It’s the brainchild of Ronnie Fieg, an obsessive collector (and former David Z stock boy) who now collaborates on shoe designs with brands like Asics and Sebago. Unlike Soho’s tourist-slammed sneaker stores, this spot has an upscale feel while still offering about twenty brands, including hard-to-find labels like Amsterdam’s Filling Pieces and London’s Swear.”

Shout out to Danny Kim who took this amazing picture of a few of our sneakers.
