After last week’s successful launch in Tokyo Ronnie Fieg and the Kith team bring the “Sakura Project” collection home to the US. The KITH “Tokyo Sakura Project” contains an all original apparel line by KITH, a capsule collection with John Elliott + Co, and Ronnie Fieg’s latest work with Puma. Ronnie Fieg x Puma – Sakura Collection Ronnie Fieg combines with Puma for another collaborative sneaker pack, both of which solidify the central theme of this collection. The R698 ($150 USD) features a colorblocked burgundy toe, as well as subtle pink paneling with white overlays. The entire upper is microperforated pigskin suede for an incredibly quality feel, and the Trinomic midsole displays a gradient. The RF698 Mid ($165 USD) is a custom silhouette designed by Fieg, and heightens the R698 to a mid-top. The upper is deep burgundy which is contrasted by a navy colorblocked toe. The upper is made from microperforated pigskin suede and nubuck, and sits atop a gradient and two-tone speckled Trinomic midsole.

The entire KITH “Tokyo Sakura Project” will be available this Saturday, March 28th, at 11AM EST at both KITH locations and online
