Kith founder Ronnie Fieg is known for releasing hard-to-get sneakers, but the designer’s new project gives new meaning to a limited-edition collaboration.
For his latest, Fieg worked with World of Niche, a sneaker brand known for selling its shoes on an appointment-only basis. The collab, which uses the World of Niche Bullet silhouette, celebrates the brand’s one-year anniversary and the launch of its third collection.
The Ronnie Fieg x World of Niche Bullet “Bloodshot” was handcrafted in Portugal with a tumbled and washed nubuck material, which Fieg says was chosen for its unique grain texture. It’s lined with a neoprene bootie and pigskin leather and features rose gold aglets.
“The inspiration behind the ‘Bloodshot’ is really about working hard in New York City and sleepless nights, and just seeing the city through bloodshot eyes,” Fieg said. “This is a very unique runner because it’s where luxury meets comfort.”
Priced at $300, this collaboration won’t be easy to come by. It was released today exclusively at World of Niche’s 66 Bleecker St. location in New York and is limited to only 50 pairs.
