Who He Is: Founder, KITH
The cult footwear designer also heads up one of the best up-and-coming New York brands around. Of course, the store always stocks Ronnie's latest footwear collaboration, whether it be with Supra, Asics, Doc Martens, or Puma, which according to Matt Halfhill of Nice Kicks, makes Ronnie one of the most influential people in sneakers right now. But Kith is also putting out quality apparel and racking up collaborations with top talent. From day one, he managed to get covetable gear like a leopard print varsity on celebrities like Justin Bieber, and now he's stepped up his game with products from it-brands like BWGH and heritage labels like Harris Tweed.
