Coming Soon: PUMA x KITH x Dover Street Market Trinomic XT2 “Achromatic” Collection


PUMA-x-KITH-x-Dover-Street-Market-Trinomic-XT2-Achromatic-3

After a few hours of writing my first post and hoping to see better images of the shoes, voila, here they are. Not only do we get to see the shoes up close and personal, Ronnie Fieg hits us with a few more words about the shoe. Like I mentioned before, this shoe screams quality in black and white. Yeah, maybe nothing new here, but the way this silhouette is presented may be a bit above people’s exceptions and/or doubts. At least from what I see in these photos (My final judgment will always be up in the air until I see them in person or grab a pair). In fact, they look geared towards the lane of ‘luxury’ footwear; think Common Projects, Balenciaga, etc. So, anyone that find those appealing may just jump into either one of these pairs or both. Especially since we aren’t being asked to dish out $400-$650. At $180, these seem like a steal to me. In fact, this shoe isn’t just about Italian leather because that’s nothing to boast about. It’s about the presentation, care and details RF set to carry out. With added accents like the velvety pig leather for the liner and footbeds, and laces with metal-plated aglets, you can only think premium in the essence of the word. He even threw in both flat and round pairs of laces in lace bags. Finally, let us not forget the last piece of the puzzle. The shoes will come in a leather custom dust bag and custom fitted box. But, this is my opinion and yours will be gathered by viewing the rest of the photos. Good luck on Saturday!

Release INFO: PUMA x KITH x Dover Street Market Trinomic XT2 “Achromatic” Collection


Puma Ronnie Fieg Dover Street Market 1

After some teaser and leaked images, we finally get a clean look at Ronnie Fieg’s next chapter with PUMA. On this third collaborative installment RF picked the Puma Trinomic XT2 to work with. Keeping up with current trends the make-ups are as simple, basic and classic as they get. Forget about hues, different leathers and materials. This is a straight forward shoe. Where basic may seem like something foreign when it comes to RF designs, let it be known that quality is what this product is about. With his motto of “Giving the consumer more than what they pay for”, Ronnie went a bit further with this make-up. Using the inspiration from the products that Dover Street Market carries and its reputation, RF created two all leather Trinomic XT2’s in a tint and shade..

Here’s a few photos of yesterdays footwear choice for the rainy weather. The 2007 release is one from a few collaborations between Nike and HUF and my personal favorite from the bunch. The main detail of the shoe is the cracked leather resembling broken concrete from an earthquake; the brand originates from California which happens to be earthquake central. I was wandering around taking photos and stopped by James Broddock North Hudson park for a few #onmyfeet images. I also just found out another dead body was found near where I was shooting. This is the second time I’m at this park while they were recovering a dead person. Maybe I shouldn’t get to close to the edges of these cliffs. Especially in the rain. Anyway,  enjoy the photos…

So, here are four random buildings through out Manhattan. Take a look at the one that looks like a Playstation 2..
