In addition to a new print issue featuring no less than eight covers with the likes of A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, NIGO, Futura and more, we here at Highsnobiety have also joined forces with Ronnie Fieg and his KITH outfit for a special 10-year anniversary sneaker pack. A decade ago, it was a very influential time for both Highsnobiety and designer-slash-retail-magnate Ronnie Fieg, so it seems only right that we link up in celebration of that fact. The resulting sneakers, produced in conjunction with PUMA, are a toast to everything we’ve achieved over the years, dubbed “A Tale of Two Cities.”
The silhouettes of choice are PUMA’s R698 and Blaze of Glory. The former is a nod to Highsnob’s roots in Berlin, picked out in a black, quilted nubuck upper with red accents and the colours of the German flag on the inside panel, while the latter references KITH’s New York home in a classic red, white and deep indigo leather combo. Both sit atop an unmistakable PUMA TRINOMIC speckled midsole.
