If you’ve been following Ronnie Fieg’s output over the past couple of years you’re no doubt acclimated to the one and done nature of his sneaker collaborations. Breaking that spell is his latest the Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 999 ‘Steel Blue’, a sneaker named for its homage to the immortal New Balance 1300 colorway of the same name. For starters there was a ‘Kithstrike’ release before the official date, with pairs randomly popping up at the KITH webshop and selling out in a matter of minutes. Then there was the release last weekend that had folks lining up at KITH locations and camping out online. And now to finish things off and spread the sneakers out to the world at large is this weekend’s global drop, with pairs popping up at a handful of select NB spots as of Saturday, June 30th. Click through to check out the New Balance 999 ‘Steel Blue’ as well as the list of locations where they can be had, including well-known purveyors of the 999 CNCPTS, and also remember there are plenty to be had right now up on eBay.

While many of Ronnie Fieg’s sneaker collaborations have been simple colorways on proven sneaker models, he merely uses that as a platform to display his distinct selection process of materials. His unique taste in materials, as seen in the premium nubuck, pigskin suede, and smooth leather for this “Steel Blue” triple-9, is what truly is the takeaway highlight of his personal design process, and with this Friday’s looming release of his New Balance 999, Ronnie Fieg and Kith will hit a lucky group of customers with the special edition box set, featuring the shoes and the Kith x New Balance apparel, which includes hoodies, crewnecks, sweat shorts, and sweatpants. Each hand-made piece (in NYC nonetheless) features Kith x NB branding, leather tagging, and drawstring tightening (on the pants items). 100 handmade wooden boxes will also be released, containing the shoes, the hoodie, and the sweat shorts (50 units per Kith retail spot in Manhattan and Brooklyn). A detailed gallery is just ahead so keep this Friday, June 22nd marked on your calender as the Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 999 ‘Steel Blue’ will become available both online and in-store at KITH.

Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 999 “Blue Steel” – Sample Process

Though its name and general style was borrowed from an all time classic, Ronnie Fieg‘s New Balance 999 ‘Steel Blue’ isn’t an exact copy of the legendary 1300 by that same moniker.  In fact, it took six different revisions before RF’s latest NB collaboration was ready for retailers, everything from material selection and distribution to which parts of the branding will make the most impact.  Given that we rarely see samples with more than one (set of) serious revision(s) for any particular sneaker design, it’s especially interesting to see the stages this one went through in order to get ready for its Friday, June 15th release date.  Click through to see the entire process, let us know how these compare to Ronnie Fieg’s best collabo kicks and stick with Sneaker News for updates.

Sneakerheads know all about how important colors can be, everything from the signature shades that give popular releases their nicknames to the standouts among those that set wider trends.  It’s those large-scale cultural movements that the visual buffet that is Pantonism offers immediately upon your first visit, its arrangement of fashion into intuitive color skews that give insight into the overlap between labels each season.  In the case of Ronnie Fieg this spring, a special mixture of grey and blue come together to define his appropriated ‘Steel Blue’ colorway on the New Balance 999 and some of the visuals that inspire their elegance.  Click through to see some new shots of the shoe itself and let us know how which color skew best defines your current look.

Right after the release weekend of Ronnie Fieg’s latest collaboration with one celebrated running imprint and we get our first substantial look at his next. Previewed here is the New Balance 999 that Fieg has been cooking up, apparently a take-off on the beloved ‘Steel Blue’ colorway of the New Balance 1300 that his Kith space recently re-launched in 2012. The sneaker does play with the traditional Steel Blue makeup a little bit, switching out the mesh sectioning towards the toe box and ankle areas in favor of a perforated suede treatment. Click through for a better look and stick with Sneaker News for release info on this modern take on a New Balance classic from Ronnie Fieg.
