Boston-based New Balance has joined forces with KITH’s Ronnie Fieg for a limited edition New Balance Made in USA 998. The Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 998 “City Never Sleeps” is inspired by New York City’s energy and blur from day-to-night and night-to-day.
The Big Apple serves as a macrocosm for the American dream and inspires people around the world to aspire and imagine like no other city in the world. New York City is filled with a drive that is uniquely its own and that is why the end of the day blurs into the next and the hustle is perpetual. The momentum of this energy is sure to never quit and the bustle will never stop – New York City never sleeps.
The premium New Balance Made in USA silhouette is done in dark tonal blue nubuck and pig suede with perforated nubuck details on the vamp. A nubuck branded tongue; waxed laces; leather lining; and reflective ‘N’ logo round-out the high-end details on the clean upper. A Ronnie Fieg branded insert designates the style.
The Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 998, manufactured in New England, is another example of the premium, refined craftsmanship that New Balance Made in USA styles deliver. New Balance’s partner and heritage lifestyle silhouettes are made with domestically sourced, quality materials with a focus on rich accents and story telling.
The Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 998 “City Never Sleeps” will be available in Singapore on 12 December 2015 at Limited Edt Vault ([email protected]) and Leftfoot Entrepot (The Cathay) for a suggested retail price of SGD349.
