Release info for Ronnie Fieg's new Adidas collab.
Adidas has teamed up with Ronnie Fieg’s KITH in Aspen, Colorado where the New York-founded boutique is hosting a three-month pop-up in the Rocky Mountains, highlighted by the Adidas Consortium x KITH Aspen Pack.
Among the items featured in the KITH Aspen Pack is the first ever, and much anticipated UltraBOOST Mid. The upper is cageless with a subtle taped panelling, a nod to the original adidas 3-Stripes branding. However, rather than the conventional Primeknit, the new UltraBoost Mid is constructed using a thicker space dyed yarn suitable for the winter months, fitting for the Aspen pop-up.
The second sneaker is featured in the collection is the Response Trail Boost, a trail shoe with a reputation for being tough and functional, though this time around it gets a lifestyle makeover.
Both models in Ronnie Fieg’s KITH Aspen Pack will be available on Friday, December 23rd at all KITH shops including KITH Aspen and Kithnyc.com. The Response Trail Boost will retail for $160 and the UltraBoost Mid will be available for $210.
To be truly successful, collaborations need to actually be collaborative. And that's exactly what the Adidas Consortium x Kith UltraBOOST Mid is. Over the past year I flew back and forth from the Adidas HQ in Herzog where I worked hand in hand with their design team to develop this all-new silhouette. Together we harped on every detail of this shoe. Knowing I wanted to release it with Kith Aspen, we selected 5 different yarns to create a multicolor palette that fits the season, we used a wool-blend Primeknit for warmth, we even integrated a new knitting technique that is much more dense so it would trap heat. Being a Mid, we designed an entirely new collar, as well as a new cageless design because I didn't want it to interfere with the overall shape. We even made the laces from the exact same Primeknit blend so they would match the upper PERFECTLY. No stone went unturned. It's my favorite shoe of 2016, and it's been killing me having to wait this long. But the wait is almost over. Stay tuned📷:@arab_lincoln
Kith Aspen focuses on gear for both on and off mountain wear. The entire collection balanced these two ideas, and the footwear I worked on with adidas is no different. While the UltraBOOST Mid offers a lifestyle option, the Response Trail BOOST is designed for function. It's my favorite silhouette from the adidas Outdoor line, and surpasses the current trend of sneaker-boot hybrids. A Continental™ lug outsole, BOOST midsole, neoprene collar, tumbled nubuck panels. Made in limited quantities. Releasing 12/23 at Kith shops and KithNYC.com
