Patron Saint of Pricey Sweatpants, Ronnie Fieg took to Instagram to announce his latest sneaker collaboration. KITH fans can look forward to scrunching their joggers into the new 110MM hightops presented in a bred colorway. The post was met with the usual fan fodder, monkey-covering-the-mouth emojis, flames and the like, but of course there were naysayers.
“If you wanna pay 1000 bucks for some over priced bred 1s,” one commenter said.
“I’ll stick to bred 1’s,” said another.
Another went on to call him “Ronnie ‘only knows how to recycle colors’ Fieg.”
Regardless of whether or not you choose to cop, you gotta admit this is some ancient archetypal shit. Consumers want “new,” are drawn to “new,” but will typically only dress within certain confines.
A matter of breeding?
