KITH Tokyo Teaser

For so long, KITH has been synonymous with New York City street style, with its roots and ears deeply entrenched in the Big Apple. Alas, every tree must grow, and after experimenting with various pop-up installations – most recently for the “West Coast Project” in Los Angeles – it seems as if Ronnie Fieg and team KITH are set to export their talents.

A teaser recently posted on Fieg’s Instagram infers that the new KITH brick and mortar may sprout in Tokyo. Although specifics on this venture are still unknown, it’s clearly impressive to watch the growth of one of streetwear’s most dedicated advocates. Stay tuned for more news on this story as it develops.

Ronnie Fieg’s Kith imprint has been able to garner such attention over the past few years, largely on account of the limited release, “Kithstrike” drops. Special Make-Up colorways and throwback designs that have become exclusive only to Kith, the limited drops have played a big role in pushing Kith’s association with ASICS quite strongly as well.

The latest debut comes through with the Gel Kayano being re-interpreted through the guise of an OG Gel Lyte V colorway. With a predominantly white upper serving as the base, the shoes see hits of Magenta and Turqoise strewn throughout the side profile, midsole, interior lining and laces.

Those in the market can now find availability through Kith NYC as well as Kith’s online shop here. Retail price is set at $125 USD.
