PUMA x Ronnie Fieg x Highsnobiety – A Tale of Two Cities
This year marks Highsnobiety’s 10-year anniversary and, to celebrate the occasion, the site has tapped KITH and PUMA for a commemorative release. Inspired by their respective roots in New York City and Berlin, the aptly named “A Tale of Two Cities” pack sees KITH founder Ronnie Fieg reworking both the Blaze of Glory and R698.
The R698 channels Germany, in premium quilted nubuck with red accents. For RF’s version sees the addition of a mesh-neoprene sock for increased support and comfort, while also taking PUMA’s classic formstripe and wrapping it around the entire shoe. Meanwhile, relevant co-branding and 3M German flag coloured accents round off the design.
Following their release at the special KITH store they will be available with select retailers from 17th October including END Clothing and Hanon.
