Ronnie Fieg has brought his talents to Tokyo for the KITH pop-up shop in the Shibuya flagship store of United Arrows & Sons. This latest drop from Fieg comes in the silhouette of the Puma R698 and the new silhouette in the mid RF698. On the low version we see high grade premium pigskin suede on the toe box in a cranberry color that’s matched on the front part of the midsole transitioning gradient into white. The upper is constructed from microperforated pigskin suede.
Puma gave Ronnie the opportunity to create a new model for this special release called the RF698 Mid which features some cool additions to the already classic trinomic era shoe. The mid-cut collar features horizontal quilting, while a neoprene inner-sock is supplemented for the tech liner. The upper features a navy microperforated nubuck toe box, and a rich burgundy microperforated pigskin suede body. The Trinomic midsole unit displays a navy-to-white gradient, as well as a dual-colored splatter effect. The medial formstripe is navy 3M, adding panache to this daunting model.
The KITH Tokyo Pop-Up Shop will exclusively release the entirety of “The Sakura Project,” in-store only, on Friday March 20th. KITH Tokyo is located within the United Arrows & Sons Shibuya flagship location at 3-28-1 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan. This installation experience will remain open from March 20th through March 23rd.
