You may have started your Black Friday shopping already but perhaps you should hold off for this one. Ronnie Fieg and New Balance have something very special in store for you, with their latest “City Never Sleeps” 998 sneaker. Following up from a few teasers earlier this week, this marks the KITH frontman’s first collaborative endeavour with the Made in USA 998 model.
Through reflecting on his hometown of New York City, the renowned shoe designer has bathed the 998 silhouette in blue nubuck, midnight navy nubuck, as well as black pigskin suede at the heel, using tri-colour segmentation. Not to forget the Big Apple’s vibrant lights, the sneaker is characterised with reflective “N” branding and an eye-catching cocaine white midsole. And if that wasn’t enough, to complement the tri-colour mould, the 998 sneakers will additionally come equipped with a trio of laces for your indecisive convenience.
Fieg’s first-time collabo sneaker with New Balance dubbed “City Never Sleeps,” is available beginning today, Black Friday via KITH’s online store at 5pm (BST), with retail estimated to be around $240.00 USD.
