Ronnie Fieg’s influence in the competitve New York City sneaker game has become a permanent mark of sorts, experiencing a considerable level or notoriety in such an astoundingly short span of time. It hasn’t been half a year yet, and NYMAG just named KITH in Brooklyn one of the best sneaker shops in all of the five boroughs, touting an ‘upscale’ vibe in comparison to the hectic scene in the SoHo/Lower Manhattan shopping district. In the spread of sneakers available at KITH (for the NYMAG feature) was an interesting pair of the Asics GT-II in navy blue and red; this upcoming Ronnie Fieg collaboration is placed among some good company – the recent ‘Rose Gold’ release and the Mazarine Blue, as well as some Euro-exclusive joints. No word on when the release is, or even if Fieg will go two GT-IIs in a row, but you know we’ll keep you updated!
