In anticipation of the NBA All Star Game in New York City this year, Fieg and Buscemi were inspired to create the most luxurious basketball shoe of all time and what they arrived at is the 110mm. The 110MM is rooted in Buscemi’s penchant for quality, as each model is handcrafted in Italy with the highest-grade Italian leathers available. The design composition is more intricate than previous Buscemi models, as they applied trapunto quilting amidst the quarter panels and tongue. The heel includes Buscemi’s signature padlock hardware in matte black, while Buscemi x Fieg branding is emblazoned on the white ripple Margom sole and tongue. After seeing the final version of the silhouette, they decided to go with a black and red combination, which is a colorway that Jon and Ronnie have loved since our early childhood.
The Ronnie Fieg x Buscemi 110MM is accompanied by black and red custom packaging, a waxed black lace, a round black lace, and is priced at $695 USD. They will release in-store at KITH Manhattan 644 Broadway and KITH Brooklyn 233 Flatbush Ave this Friday, February 6th. An online release will follow on Saturday, February 7th, at 11AM EST at KithNYC.com and on the KITH App. What are your thoughts on these gems?
