Shortly after the release of his New Balance 999 “Steel Blue”, Ronnie Fieg goes full swing with another unshackle of a New Balance shoe. This time instead of working with a China based NB model, he gets the honor of working on one of New Balance’s “Made In USA” products and iconic model, the 1300. Not only is this his favorite NB silhouette, but one of the more desirable NB’s by fans all over the world. The quality will no doubt be on point with the classic nubuck, mesh, and shape of the 1300. Add an appealing color-way that sports a tonal Navy in the mix with a pop of light blue and a contrasting ‘Salmon’ out-sole and you will have one of the better collaborations for this year. Not only that, but it’s definitely the pinnacle release from the house that built KITH for 2012. So where, when and how can you grab these?…
Unlike past releases of allowing fans to camp, KITH have decided to permit consumers to come in now to either KITH Manhattan or Brooklyn to sign up for the opportunity to reserve and grab a pair on release day. All you need to do is bring in a valid ID to sign up at either location. Be aware that they will not allow anyone to camp outside the store, nor will you be able to buy it unless your name is on the reserve list. There of course will also be a limited online launch for all those that can’t make it to the store.
To accompany the release of the shoe, Ronnie Fieg has once again teamed up with Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen for a matching lined varsity jacket. The jacket will also be on a first come bases by the same means of the NB 1300 release. Just go to the store with your ID and get added to the reserve list. There will be 50 pairs of the jacket and the cost will be $250USD. No word if these will make an appearance online or not.
Good luck to all on grabbing their pairs and for those like myself waiting for the online launch, EXTRA good luck as we race to get our orders in.
