This winter, Consortium joins Ronnie Fieg’s KITH in Colorado where the New York-founded brand and retailer is hosting a three-month popup in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Throughout 2016, adidas has worked closely with Fieg to put together this very special Aspen Pack.
You can take the store out of the city and what you will get is an interesting retail hybrid which draws together influences, marrying street style with outdoor performance functionality. KITH operates stores in New York City, Brooklyn and sunny Miami. Fieg’s unique taste paired with experiences gathered via these diverse retail locations leads to genuinely unique collaborations.
The Response Trail BOOST is fundamentally a trail shoe with a reputation for being tough and functional. Here it gets a lifestyle makeover. Still high on tech it comes equipped with a neoprene collar and a speed lacing system. The sole is a hybrid of exposed BOOST™ and hard-wearing, grippier rubber. Outdoor footwear is currently enjoying a big moment in the cities among sneaker enthusiasts looking for a shoe robust enough withstand the cold, while still providing them with the level of comfort they are accustomed to.
Both models in Ronnie Fieg’s KITH Aspen push not only stylistic barriers but also those of geography and terrain, blurring the distinction between the city and the mountains.
Look for the RF x Adidas Consortium Response Trail TR Kith to release in limited quantities this Saturday Dec 31st at NRML (184 Rideau).
