Owner of KITH
Operating within the ebbs and flows of contemporary sneaker culture, Ronnie Fieg’s forte lies in the curation of limited release products. Through collaboration with heavyweights including ASICS, Sebago, Saucony and others, in due course the New York-born designer has established himself as somewhat of a footwear authority. Fieg’s experiences have provided an overview of the ins-and-outs of the industry by way of his ascension from stock boy to head buyer at a local boutique named David Z, while he has moved on to communicate his story effectively through sneaker releases that are coveted by many. Throughout 2013 Fieg has made waves with two KITH boutiques in NoHo and Brooklyn, and by honing his private sportswear brand KITH White Label. The “Volcano” and “Daytona” drops also credited to Fieg’s name this year were met with a positive response. Not a release goes by where there isn’t a high level of support and anticipation.
