40. Ronnie Fieg
Who And Why: Designer, entrepreneur, collaborator
Years Of Influence: 1998-present
Ronnie was the head buyer for David Z for many years. He now has a store called Kith and in my mind, Ronnie is one of those young guns that will carry the torch for sneaker culture as it moves forward. He’s a great mix of being educated from the streets and yet, experienced and professional enough to work within large companies. To have both of those ears finely tuned is a really powerful thing to have.
