Kith and New Balance are back at it again. Just weeks after dropping a pack of 1700s to commemorate the opening of Kith Toronto, Ronnie Fieg is now partnering with the iconic New York venue, Madison Square Garden, offering two colorways of the 990v6 inspired by the The World’s Most Famous Arena.
The colorways pay homage to the two teams that call MSG home, the New York Knicks and the New York Rangers. The “Knicks” pair features a neutral Sandrift hue across the upper, accented with pops of blue and orange on the N logo, sockliner, heels, and tongues. To honor NYC’s hockey team, the “Rangers” pair comes dressed primarily in navy with splashes of red and blue. Both pairs are constructed with mesh, premium suede overlays, and reflective paneling. Kith and MSG branding is found on the insoles, and every shoe comes with a co-branded dust bag and packaged in a custom collaborative box bearing custom Madison Square Garden artwork.
This collaboration coincides with the unveiling of the New York Knicks’ new City Edition uniforms for the 2022-23 season. This marks the fourth season that Ronnie Fieg has been in charge of designing the City Edition jerseys, as well as the second season of Fieg as the team’s creative director.
The exclusive drawing for the Kith x New Balance 990v6 “Madison Square Garden” Pack is open now on the Kith app and closes on Monday, November 6th. The global release will take place on Monday, November 6th at 11am ET/CET at select Kith shops and on the Kith website. Check out both pairs below.
Update (11/10/23): The “Knicks” colorway will see a wider release on November 16th on the New Balance website.
