Release Date: July 25
Buy: Online and in stores at KITH
Editor's Notes: There's no denying Ronnie Fieg's eye for detail, at least where sneakers are concerned. Over the years, the KITH frontman has offered up some of the industry's favorite collectibles – some may go as far as to say he's responsible for keeping the ASICS GEL-LYTE III alive and well. You need only eyeball the popularity of KITH's sneaker collaborations on StockX to see the truth in motion.
KITH imprint hasn't extended far and wide across the industry, offering up exclusively takes on some of the most love silhouettes ever made. Of course, ASICS is a centerpiece, but store openings and genera collaborations have provided bangers across the Nike Air Force 1 Low, a handful of Converse, a whole heard of New Balance (several of which made a comeback earlier this year), and a sprinkling of adidas styles.
On review of the retailer's influence, it's impossible to overlook Vault by Vans' several appearances. With Vans, you get frill-free Californian cool, which pairs perfectly with KITH's design sensibilities.
Summer 2022 marks the pair's latest link-up, coming just in time to keep your seasonal rotation in check for the period's peaks. Seemingly inspired by needlepoint canvases – you know, the type your grandparents would spend their hours stitching up or would have displayed all over the house – the selection remixes three of Vans' most iconic styles.
Arriving for adults and kids, the OG Classic Slip-On LX and the OG Authentic LX come decorated in beautifully intricate prints dubbed "Medallion," "Azulejo Tile," and "Vintage Rose."
