Ronnie Fieg took to Instagram on 11/13 to officially debut the first shoe of his 2018 Kith x New Balance collection. The shoe he featured is the New Balance 997S Fusion, and Fieg also hinted at two other models created in collaboration with Arrows & Sons and Nonnative, which are pictured in a second Twitter post from 11/14 (below). Check out the posts and further commentary below.
In Fieg’s post on 11/14, he highlights the classic NB997 models that will be featured in the 2018 Kith x Nonnative x United Arrows & Sons Ronnie Fieg’s iconic collaborations with brands like New Balance and Asics catalyzed his growth into the mogul status he has in the streetwear community today- not to mention setting an industry standard for quality. As Kith has grown, Fieg has reinvested the profits into the Kith empire and continued to land unique collaborative partners. This culminated in Fieg most recently presenting collaborations with Tommy Hilfiger and Versace at his massive ‘Kith Park’ fashion show.
This recent announcement sees Fieg return to his roots of utilizing lesser known runner silhouettes and combining them with incredibly rich materials and colorways. Fieg also highlights his brand’s commitment to supporting those that support them. Kith collaborated with Nonnative and United Arrows & Sons on the 6 new pieces- all of which he says pay homage to two original New Balance collabs with the brands respectively. He also reiterates the reinstatement of the Kith Loyalty program, to give advantage to loyal purchasers of past Kith x NB designs.
Although information is still minimal, there’s nothing but excitement for this collection. Already Fieg has shown us the new Fusion model, can’t wait to see what else is in store. Let us know your thoughts below in the comments.
