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 reintroduces ASICS Gel Sight for “West Coast Project”

 

Ronnie Fieg teases the West Coast Project’s ASICS Gel Sight

Fresh off the announcement of the Los Angeles-set West Coast Project, Ronnie Fieg took to Instagram to tease the endeavor’s collaborative ASICS Gel Sight. Decked out in oceanic shades of blue, the kicks — like past Fieg releases — emphasize clean color-blocking and premium materials while KITH’s own logo comes embossed at the heel.

Expect a full look at the release in the days ahead. KITH’s West Coast Project space will open its doors February 20 on Abbott Kinney in Venice, CA.

KITH x ASICS Gel Lyte V “Grand Opening”

Joining tomorrow’s GT-2 release and capping off the collaborative “Grand Opening” pack — which kicked off last November with the Gel Lyte III and Gel Saga — is a special edition of the Gel Lyte V from ASICS and KITH. Designed by Ronnie Fieg in celebration of the redesigned and expanded KITH location on Bleecker Street in Manhattan, the Gel Lyte V follows the formula set forth by the rest of the back and comes dressed in luxurious black glove leather while retaining its neoprene inner sleeve. Finally, waxed cotton laces, white lining, and a matching midsole complete the package.

The “Grand Opening” edition of the Gel Lyte V is set to be available alongside both the matching GT-2 and the KITH x Aimé Leon Dore “Chapter 1″ Collection this Friday, January 9 at KITH’s Manhattan and Brooklyn storefronts, as well as KithNYC.com at 11 a.m. EST.

Designer Ronnie Fieg continues his storied partnership with ASICS as the two renew their relationship for their latest collaborative endeavor: “Rose Gold” and Sage editions of the Gel Lyte V. Amassing 10 different materials between the two, the release sees an updated and reimagined take on the “Rose Gold” colorway that graced the GT-II at the hands of Fieg back in 2012. This time around the colorway sees the addition of a second Pantone to the crossing stripes for a bit more depth while the 3M formstripes are asymmetrical–white on the lateral side and blue on the medial.

Joining the “Rose Gold” Gel Lyte V is a “Sage” edition of the retro trainer. Decked out in premium pigskin and combining a micro-perforated sage-colored vamp with sea green overlays, the kicks sport hits of premium white leather while an open mesh material amplifies the silhouette’s unique sock liner. Rounding out the look are aqua blue formstripes and subtle safari print detailing.

Retailing for $170 USD each, the “Rose Gold” and “Sage” editions of the ASICS Gel Lyte V will be available this Saturday, August 30 at 11 a.m. EDT at Kith‘s 66 Bleecker St. pop-up, Kith Brooklyn at 233 Flatbush, and KithNYC.com.

The hubbub around Ronnie Fieg‘s latest World Cup-related project has been substantial. Going big with it, Fieg orchestrated a pop-up shop in São Paulo at Cartel 011, announced the release of Kith Football Equipment, and cooked up a new collaboration with ASICS in the form of a Gel Lyte III and a GT-II as part of the “KFE” pack.
 
While the “USA” Gel Lyte III in all-gold leather pays homage to the American team, the royal blue GT-II in pigskin serves as a nod to the host country Brazil. Both sneakers are being sold to ticket-holders only at Kith locations in New York.

Last week we saw the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte III Kit Football Equipment “USA,” today Ronnie Fieg has previewed this upcoming ASICS GT-II “Brazil” model. The Brazilian theme is very consistent with the majority of the shoe as the upper is in a deep shade of blue with gold accents along the sides, while the back heel incorporates a stripe to signify the colors of the national flag.

As before with the “USA” project, there is no official word on price or release date but keep checking back for more information and keep your eyes peeled for any upcoming country’s to get the Ronnie Fieg treatment.

ASICS Gel Kayano “OG Kithstrike”

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.
