It's been a long road to Kith for owner Ronnie Fieg. Starting out stocking boxes at mass-market shoe store David Z, Fieg worked his way up the chain until he was consulting on buys and designing collaborations. Fieg brings his eye for curation and talent for selective buys to both of Kith's locations. The stores also support smaller brands with cult followings—like Clae and Supra—while stocking the best of Nike's Flyknits and Wovens.
