Ronnie Fieg and the team at Kith NYC have been very busy lately with the remodeling and expansion of their Manhatten location. We've seen a few collections released from Kith starting with the RF x Adidas Originals EQT support 93 "NYC's Bravest" sneaker collaboration and a matching "Never Forget" themed apparel collection which launched on the day of their re-opening. Ronnie followed up the "Never Forget" collection with the Kith "Academy" apparel collection which was made up seasonally appropriate rugbys, hoodies, sweatpants and jackets. Fast forward to last Saturday, November 8th, the Kith Classics apparel line dropped on the newly introduced Kith mobile shopping app which is exclusive to the iPhone and iPad. To coincide with both the launch of the Kith Classics line, and the mobile app, Ronnie blessed us with 2 sneaker releases from Asics. A Gel Lyte 3 and a Gel Saga, which were dubbed the "Grand Opening" pack, were offered exclusively on the Kith app. Both pairs of Asics sport a plush black leather upper that sits atop a beige midsole/outsole combo. An off-white leather liner and black wax laces round out the details on this set of subtle but beautiful Asics.
The Ronnie Fieg x Asics "Grand Opening" pack released last Saturday, November 8th exclusively on the new Kith mobile app and to our surprise, some sizes in both models are still available. Check out some pictures below I took of the Gel Lyte 3 from the Ronnie Fieg x Asics "Grand Opening" pack. Let us know what you think about the "Grand Opening" pack, and which pair you like better.
