Updated September 21st, 2023: Kith confirms release info for the Kith x New Balance 1700. The “Rococco Red” will release exclusively at Kith Toronto on 9/22. On Monday, 9/25, both the Rococco Red and Marshmallow colorways will be available at all Kith shops.
Word of KITH expanding up north has been floating around for some time, though the retailer themselves have yet to share any official details regarding the Toronto storefront. Ronnie Fieg, however, has all but confirmed the rumors, sharing a first look at two commemorative styles of the New Balance 1700.
Likely exclusive to the above-mentioned flagship — which, given the reveal, should be opening its doors very soon — the KITH x New Balance 1700 celebrates the brand’s big move into Canada. The two colorways appropriately draw inspiration from the country’s flag, paying homage to it in two drastically different manners. One pair dresses much of its suede upper in red, while its counterpart uses the bright color as an accent to its more neutral-dominant construction.
Enjoy a closer look at both colorways of the KITH x New Balance 1700 ahead. More information regarding the collaboration’s release should be unveiled soon, so sit tight and stay tuned for further updates.
