Kith founder and sneaker king Ronnie Fieg recently sat down with Vogue to look back at his beautiful wedding to Shir Yaakov. Fieg’s mother was instrumental in the decision to have the wedding in Israel. “Shir and I are both Israeli-Americans and have extended family there,” Ronnie explains. “It was the perfect opportunity to show our friends our motherland and have them experience our culture.”
Not just any sneaker was going to do for his wedding party. He partnered with Nike on a sneaker for his groomsman. “We worked on a low-top Blazer silhouette that we executed in premium materials and colored black to fit the occasion,” he explains. “We also made white Air Force 1 lows for the bridesmaids. We removed the medial swoosh from both the Blazers and the Air Force 1s and replaced it with our wedding logo. Each pair was personalized and came in special packaging. I am so grateful for my close friends and wanted to make sure I gave them something unique as a token of my appreciation.”
