During the 9/11 terror attack, Ronnie Fieg was one of many New Yorkers whom experienced this attack directly, which he went on to explain in detail his experience and you can check it out here.
As a tribute to the terror attack, Ronnie Fieg partners with adidas Consortium for the first time to pay homage to those who protect New York City. Gold leather is matched with premium nubuck and navy leather to redesign the adidas EQT Support 93 silhouette.
Ronnie Fieg described this collaboration as:
“I sourced an exquisite gold leather for the toe to represent the NYPD badge, and added a fishscale print as an element of levity. A mixture of navy oily wrinkled nubuck and supple glove leather symbolizes the NYPD uniform. The debossed “Equipment”-branding on the heel is enlarged for emphasis, and accentuates the high-grade grain of the leather. The woven material used for the quarter panels represents Kevlar, the protective armor used by officers in the field. The Three Stripes logos and quarter panels are asymmetrical, and flow seamlessly into the midsole detail. The lateral Stripes are 3M, and a color I call NYPD-blue. The trickiest detail was adding 3M paint to the lateral midsole, so the hue matches precisely. The medial stripes are navy leather on the outside, gold leather with a fishscale print for the center, and are complemented by a white quarter panel.”
The Ronnie Fieg x adidas Consortium EQT Support 93 “NYC’s Bravest” is priced at $170 USD, and will be available this Saturday, October 11th, at 11AM EST at the New KITH Shop at 644 Broadway, KITH Brooklyn at 233 Flatbush, and online at KithNYC.com.
