Ronnie Fieg Reveals His Latest New Balance Colab
Dropping later this week, the collaboration pays homage to two of the Kith head honcho's favourite NBs ever: 997.5s from United Arrows and nonnative. The ambitious collaborative endeavour offers up six pairs of kicks in all, three inspired by each collaboration. The colourways of the grails have been reinterpreted here and employed across three different silhouettes: the OG American-made 997, the brand new 997S (a sporty, contemporary reimagining of the original 997), and the 997S Fusion — a hybrid that pairs the new ENCAP Reveal tooling of the 997S with an original 997 upper.
In typical Fieg and NB fashion, the kicks are chock full of premium materials and luxurious details, employing everything from neoprene sock construction and turned seams on the 997S to pigskin suede, pony hair, and ostrich-embossed leather.
All six designs are set to hit kith.com and Kith shops at 11 a.m. EST on Wednesday, November 21. United Arrows and nonnative will also launch the kicks online at that same day and time ahead of an in-store release on November 22.

This is my best work with New Balance. 6 of my 18 New Balance shoes and they are the 6 best to date. So thankful to New Balance for trusting me in launching the 997 Sport and for being a really great partner through the years, United Arrows & Sons and Nonnative for the creative freedom and their trust in letting me create new products using their grails as inspiration. This collection will age well.
