Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 1600 – Teaser
Remember when we told you that Ronnie Fieg had a New Balance 1600 coming up? Pictured here is the first glimpse at the shoe. In typical Fieg fashion we’re not allowed to see the whole thing just yet, but the pieces shown do give us an idea of what to expect colors and materials wise. The shoe looks to be a pink and tan affair that has a good bit of perforated leather-which is a particular choice we can’t ever remember seeing on the New Balance 1600 before. See the full photo below and stay tuned to Sneaker News to find out when this upcoming Ronnie Fieg collab sneaker is releasing.

they could be made of Gold and I still wouldnt buy them for the fact that this is an ASIAN made NB, NOT US or UK, so the shape is wonky. 1600 arent even made in uk or usa. Shame he would take the cheap way out and go asian but im sure the hype lil resellers will buy em up anyhow. Im suprised theres not a 5yr old asian worker standing there holding the shoes. shame on the (shoe) game
@andred77777 Has NB ever done a collab where the shoe is made here in the US? I'm trying to up my NB knowledge but I'm not aware of any.
@FutureTomorrow_ @andred77777 That 1300 "salmon toe" from Ronnie for one. Plus didn't he have some red and green pairs of 574's to intro KITH. And wasn't one of Ubiq's last couple of NB collabs American made? They had a 574 with a cw similar of one J. Crew used in a 1300. Oh yeah. The two pairs of 574's Buck and Ball done last year.
@Sertsj456 Thanks man. I'll have to look that up.
@sole_serious @FutureTomorrow_ @andred77777 Ronnie Fieg never did a salmon toe NB. I think you mean the Salmon Soles? The only Salmon Toe shoe he did was for Asics. If you Google Ronnie Fieg Salmon Toe and Salmon Soles you get to different shoes the ones being the latter I believe you're referring to. As for the others I'll def need to check out the production details. Thanks.
