Ronnie Fieg and Kith have gotten criticized for their Fall 2022 campaign as it showcases the legendary Jerry Seinfeld in less-than-age-appropriate gear. Nevertheless, the latest collection from the Queens-born creative also features two New Balance sneaker styles.
To celebrate the original 990’s 40th anniversary, the New England-headquartered company has been churning out different takes on the New Balance 990v2 and New Balance 990v3 over the last eight months. Kith’s latest offerings don’t introduce anything new to either sneakers’ expansive catalogs, although the latter silhouette takes on a heritage-inspired “Steel Blue” arrangement. Both styles compliment the autumn-appropriate gear showcased in Fieg and team’s latest lookbook, with ABZORB and ENCAP-cushioning solutions opting for slightly-“aged” aesthetics that round out each offering.
Enjoy campaign imagery of the duo ahead, and find pairs via Kith.com and in-person outposts on Friday, September 9th.
