KITH founder Ronnie Fieg, menswear/culture blog Highsnobiety, and PUMA are teaming up to celebrate the blogs 10th anniversary with two special edition PUMA sneakers. The KITH x Highsnobiety x PUMA “A Tale of Two Cities” is inspired by both founder’s native land. The PUMA silhouettes of choice include the Blaze of Glory representing New York and the United States, and the R698 symbolizing the city of Berlin, Germany. Both pairs feature KITH and Highsnobiety branding. Each pair is packaged inside a custom box displaying graphics of each trainer’s respective country. These boxes also effectively double as standing magazine holders, tying the entire story together, and allowing customers to exhibit their Highsnobiety Magazine collection in proper fashion.

The KITH x Highsnobiety x PUMA “A Tale of Two Cities” will be available on Friday, September 25 2015 at KITH Manhattan (644 Broadway), KITH Brooklyn (233 Flatbush Ave), Soto Berlin (Torstraße 72) and online at KithNYC.com at 11AM EST. Retail price is set at $160.
A special KITH-edition of Highsnobiety’s 10th Anniversary Issue will accompany in- store pairs of purchased sneakers. 100 copies will be included – at random to select online orders – of both pairs of sneakers via Kithnyc.com.
Produced in very limited quantities, this mag features a black cover with a metallic silver KITH logo that scratches off to reveal a split USA-Germany flag graphic.
