The ongoing library of Ronnie Fieg-tapped sneaker collaborations continues next Friday with the release of the New Balance 999. Dubbed the ‘Steel Blue’ for its cold concoction of grey tones and cool blue on the creamy suede, this upcoming Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 999 opens new doors or sneaker collectors who have been following the growing library of Fieg’s work, which has made its thorough impression with his Asics works over the last few years. The 999 focuses on trail running, the Fieg brings a bit of leisure with an unmistakeable blue and grey, arranged perfectly to give this oft-used combination some new life. A detailed gallery sits just ahead, so take a look and circle your calendars for June 15th when these release in-store and online at KITH.
I thought these were alright till I learned what a ronnie feig was. You homos watch that garbage. Nb and diet pills. No thanks bossed up fat boy style rockin my j's.
I don't get why people hate on Ronnie. i think he makes some nice shoes. he always uses good quality and his coloways are very clean and dope. i don't get why theres all this hate. this is a nice shoe wether his name is on it or it isn't.
Wow, someone that hates "homos" as much as you openly do must have something to hide. Like maybe a pair pink panties on under that gangsta outfit you probably have on to go with new playoff 12. PS. you should buy more new Jordan. Straight people think thats the coolest thing to do.
Why do people always say Fieg uses quality materials? New Balance already uses quality materials. Does Asics use bum materials or something? They can't be worse than the materials on certain Jordan retros.
materials he uses on asics are the basics, there is nothing special about pig skin suede.. now if he was using calf skin on the other hand, that'd be a different story.
