Ronnie Fieg has been quietly teasing what’s to come between his store Kith and New Balance on Twitter, including posting a cryptic tweet about a possible 998 collaboration to celebrate the silhouette’s 30th anniversary this year. Now, we have a first look at his forthcoming project.
Gracing the current issue of Shoes Master is the unreleased Kith x New Balance 998 collab as confirmed by the Japanese sneaker magazine on Instagram. In typical Kith fashion, the 998 shown above features a premium pigskin suede upper, including various hairy suede panels throughout. Both shoes pictured don different color schemes, so it’s currently unclear if it’s one mismatched pair or two separate releases.
At the time of writing, release details for the Kith x New Balance 998 collab have yet to be announced by either of the two entities. Keep it locked to Sole Collector for official updates.
