With the dust having settled from the Thanksgiving holiday we can reflect back on something that is worth taking note. The popularity of Ronnie Fieg and his exclusive collaborations have grown immensely over the last couple of years, but it has now reached a height that few can match.
Having made it fully aware weeks in advance about the release of a New Balance 1600 known as the "Daytona" on black Friday, Ronnie came out firing with a surprise release for cyber Monday. The shoe that was released on Monday was a New Balance 577, dubbed as the "Americana".
One of the most noticeable thing about the two shoes is the choice in materials used by Ronnie Fieg. The Daytona sports a vibrant blue suede for the toe that is hard to be equalled. Match that with a fine back tan leather and a middle section made up of a smoother suede than used for the toe. The color scheme for this shoe uses great neutrals to accentuate energy given off by the pink and blue hues. The Americana is built up mostly out of two kinds of pig skin suedes that give the shoe an almost denim like aesthetic while maintaing its suede feel. Both New balances also feature creative additions of 3M to certain areas.
