Ronnie Fieg’s collaboration hustle has been acknowledged by a publication he’s been reading for half his life. The honour comes from Footwear News, who've bestowed Fieg with their 2017 Collaborator of the Year Award.

After winning last year’s Retailer of the Year Award, Fieg has gone back-to-back like Jordan ’96, ’97 — only this year he was handed the title by a hero of his.
As he said to FN:
‘If I was to tell my 15-year-old self that Tommy Hilfiger will be handing me an award for a publication that I’ve been reading half my life, to receive Collaborator of the Year award, I would probably smack myself, I wouldn’t believe it.’
