Today, the KITH x Highsnobiety x PUMA "A Tale of Two Cities" pack releases at 11 a.m. EST. In celebration of our 10-year anniversary, KITH founder and footwear maven Ronnie Fieg offered up his design expertise across PUMA's Blaze of Glory and R698 silhouettes in a two-part release inspired by the locations of our respective HQs: Highsnobiety's in Berlin and KITH's in New York.

Representing New York, the RF-Blaze of Glory is done up in a USA-proper red, white, and blue with a premium quilted leather upper and co-branded forefoot strap and speckled Trinomic midsole. As a further nod to the States, asymmetrical stars and stripes are featured on the tongue, while an American flag-themed footbed lines the shoe in quilted leather.

The RF698 channels Germany, in premium quilted nubuck with red accents. For RF's version of the silhouette, Fieg removed the 698's traditional tongue, adding a mesh-neoprene sock for added 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 colored accents round out the design.

To complete the release, each shoe comes in a custom flag-inspired box that also doubles as a magazine holder, allowing you to display our new 10th anniversary issue and more. The special scratch-off KITH edition of our magazine will be given out to customers purchasing the sneakers in-store, with further copies made available online.

Lastly, KITH Treats will be debuting special-edition cereal boxes that mimic each shoe's colorway with KITH x Highsnobiety branding. Treats customers can redeem four proof of purchase tickets for a KITH Treats-exclusive "A Tale of Two Cities" tee that features the same logo as our magazine cover.

The KITH x Highsnobiety x PUMA "A Tale of Two Cities" pack is out today at 11 a.m. EST through KITH, SOTO Berlin, and the Highsnobiety webstore.
