Over the years he begin to designe and collaborate with some of the most prestigious brand like Converse, Vans, Asics, Red Wing, Sebago and creating a cult around his personality, capable of turning in the best-selling all which he puts hands on.

Eventually Ronnie decides to open his own shop and so Kith comes to life in New York. A store that sells three categories of shoes: lifestylesneakers, boots and 'brown shoes' as defined by Ronnie himself, which includes, for example Sebago boat shoes.
A combination of products not simple to be found within the same store.
After the launch of the store, the line of Kith logo t-shirt is literally steals for New York and become a sort of cult object, such as they were at the time Hard Rock Cafè t-shirts. Given the successKith becomes a real clothiing brand, assuming the dimensions of a real high end streetwear collection by clean and refined design.
Inside the store obviously are not lacking many limited edition and collaboration made by the same Ronnie Fieg.
The design of the New York store is at the same time clean, functional but extremely original.
Protrude from a wall hundreds of pencils signed Kith creating a particular pattern while giant glass cases contains mannequins.
After the store in Manhattan, Bleeker Street, jsut near Brodway a new store in Brooklyn comes.
For those who did not have a chance to reach New York, the online shop is well stocked, although, as you can imagine some limited edition are reserved only to customers of the physical store.
