Last year was a banner year for Ronnie Fieg's Kith brand, but he's setting his sights even higher for 2016. After the $2 million Kith Brooklyn renovation, the introduction of Kith Treats and Kith Women, and dozens of sought after sneaker collaborations, Fieg has just announced that he's taking his talents to South Beach.
In a new blog post, Fieg reflected on Kith's growth over the last few years, with milestones like expanding from four to 81 employees and establishing different departments for things like design, management, and production. The kicker, though, is that Fieg plans to expand Kith to Miami — a city he's extremely familiar with — with another store created in collaboration with Snarkitecture.
"It will be a new market for us, a market we know very well. I'm excited to expand outside of New York with our city's mentality and help bring some of our culture elsewhere," Fieg said. "Miami has been extremely welcoming in the past and that is why I will give this new space my all to make sure the people of Miami have a new home to come to."
