The KITH “Tokyo Sakura Project” revolves around Japanese traditionalism that is updated with contemporary elements.
The Tokyo Sakura Collection with Puma is comprised of a classic R698, which represents the beginning of the seasonal transition, as well as the RF698 Mid, which represents the darker ending. The R698 is composed of microperforated pigskin suede, and utilizes burgundy colorblocking amidst the toe. The rest of the upper features a subtle light pink base with white overlay panels. The lateral formstripe is scythed to give a petal-effect. The Trinomic midsole unit includes a gradient to fit the entire color scheme. A tonal leather liner is the final detail on this model. The RF698 Mid’s upper is entirely microperforated, with nubuck used for the toe and pigskin for the remainder. A burgundy body is offset by a dark navy forefoot, which plays into the gradient dual-speckle Trinomic midsole. The inner-sock is fastened from neoprene, and includes both tongue and heel pulls for accessibility. The medial formstripe is asymmetrical, and made from navy 3M. Both models in the pack also feature tonal 3M KITH | Ronnie Fieg tongue labels, co-branded quilted insoles, three sets of lace options, and custom packaging.
