Ronnie Fieg X Puma R698 & RF698 Mid "Sakura".

by Henrik Buzzi

Ronnie Fieg continues his strong partnership with Puma for the release of his latest venture – The Sakura Project. This collection is comprised of a Trinomic-era staple-silhouette in the R698, as well as an all-new mid-top silhouette designed by Fieg, the RF698 Mid. Both unisex models feature colorways inspired by the remarkable simultaneous blooming of the sakura blossoms throughout Japan.
The R698 represents the beginning of this natural phenomenon, as it displays a light color palette.  While the RF698 Mid stands on the other side of the seasonal transition, utilizing a darker execution.

Both models are accompanied by three sets of lace options and custom packaging. Each will release in tandem with the KITH “Sakura Project,” which includes all original KITH apparel, as well as a Kith x John Elliott + Co capsule collection. The entire KITH “Sakura Project” will release March 20th, exclusively at the KITH Tokyo Pop-Up located within the United Arrows & Sons Shibuya flagship store at 3-28-1 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan.
