What happens when one of the industry’s most successful collaborators opens his own retail space in Brooklyn? In one sense, the answer is as simple as clicking on the jump below these words so you can see all the images from this weekend’s Kith grand opening and the instant sellout release of the Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Salmon Toe’. On the other, to fully appreciate the significance of this event, you’d have to understand that the Salmon Toes were in the works for over two years and were left by the wayside in favor of other Fieg-penned collabos like the ‘Mint Leaf’ and ‘Aqua Marine’. So very much like Kith itself, the Salmon Toe GLIII is a milestone commemorating Fieg’s ascention to the upper eschelon of streetwear influencers; will he keep it fresh enough to stay on top?
