The History of Kith

The History of Kith

Kith was founded by Ronnie Fieg back in 2011, and over the past decade it has grown to become one of the largest brands and retail stores in the world. In this episode of Threaducation we’ll talk about how Ronnie started off working in the backroom of a shoe store and eventually became one of the biggest names in the sneaker industry and the fashion industry. We’ll be tracking it all the way from his first collection to his first fashion show at New York Fashion Week, and we’ll also touch on many of his collabs including ones with Nike, Adidas, Asics, Versace, as well as so much more. This is the history of Kith.

    Dope work mane. I found David Zs in the 90’s and would drive up from DC to buy. They always had fresh and unique styles, never thought there was a movement afoot but 30 years later I couldn’t be happier.

    Sadelle is amazing in Paris. Kith is an experience and love that not a lot of people know about it. At least here in Holland. Love the videos ✌️



  5. Local Fatty on February 20, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    Please make a video on the history of fuct. Even though they have been massively influential for almost 30 years, never ever shown any sort of love.

    Great video but a few things are off. The First Kith store open in the back of the Atrium store (they had their own entrance) in the Village. He then open Kith women’s across the street. It was a very small location but he wanted to give woman an exclusive location. Atrium would than open in Brooklyn. Kith became a part of the store. Inevitably Atrium would go out of business. So Kith ended up taking over the entire space.

    Kinda crazy that David Z didn’t just let Ronnie open Kith inside his store like the one guy did. Not the right fit. Ronnie is a legend and king of the industry when it comes to collabs done right. From the very beginning he made it happen. Respect ✊

    Ok first off another banger by threaducation of course. Second, I haven’t gone to a kith store but I would love to go visit one now… I always wondered why juice wrld was selling ice cream in his interview at kith but now I know :0



  26. philworst on February 20, 2022 at 11:15 pm

  27. truth teller on February 20, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    Why is he going out of his way not to say New Balance I wonder 💭 he’s just as known for NB as he is for Asics.



  28. J The Tailor on February 20, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Great content ! One day 1961 the Collection will be a featured brand on you’re site

  30. Jay Martin on February 20, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    Wow. I such a fan.



  31. M K on February 20, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Thanks for this!!! KITH is across the street from my home. I often see massive lines to get into the store but, old person that I am, I had no clue what was going on there and no interest in finding out (the cereal bar was very confusing). Now I think I’ll run across the street and check out this apparently iconic store! Side note, Kith is next door to a store called Vinnie’s that sells similar items and (to my untrained eye) seems just as succesful. I haven’t gone to that store either, I’ll check it out too!



  32. applejuice76 on February 20, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Straight white man who’s into shoes and dresses like a “f*ck boy”… groundbreaking.



  33. MurdokX on February 20, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Do Rhude! 😏



  44. D D on February 20, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    Whoever tf is running Adidas is a fucking genius. They are ahead of the game on everything they’re always creating trends and doing everything first. Nike is just as innovative but Someone very high up in adidas has a taste for style that is unmatched by anyone else in the industry.



  45. 1Keba 313 on February 20, 2022 at 11:29 pm

  49. Sixth Sense, LLC on February 20, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    A list of video topics I think would be dope to cover

    History of stussy, the hundreds, huf, bbc & ice cream, crooks and castles, 10 deep, obey, undefeated, black scale, diamond supply co, Jeff staple and staple design/reed space, and the site karmaloop.

    Please and thank you.
