Ronnie Fieg for Sebago Fall/Winter 2011 Seneca

Ronnie Fieg for Sebago Fall/Winter 2011 Seneca

Ronnie Fieg, the New Yorker who has been in the shoe game before he even hit adulthood, just released his latest collaboration. Yet another collaboration with Sebago. The Fall/Winter 2011 collection will only have a limited release of 360 pairs per color. The following blurb details the craftmanship and work details of this new boot straight from Ronnie Fieg himself:

Okay, It’s boot season. For the first installment of my Sebago Fall/Winter collection, I’m introducing the Sebago Seneca whip stitch boot in two Horween leathers, Tan pull up and “43″ dark brown (same leather used on my original light house from 2 years ago). Drawing inspiration from my original Lighthouse boot, I added a few premium upgrades to create the Seneca . I switched up from the traditional Docksides outsole to the clean and reworked Campside sole, I like how there is a slight wedge in the back, super clean. Both the whip stitch on the toebox and the leather plug on the bottom of the sole are the details that really makes this boot special. The whip stich process is much more difficult to produce and when done right it looks really special and premium. Limited to 360 pairs per color and priced at $150, both colors will be available this Friday, October 28th at 11 am est. exclusively at our Kith Brooklyn location as well as on Ronniefieg.com.

Ronnie Fieg started out at the bottom of the chain at retailer David Z. But he worked his way up the ladder and build many many connections and valuable industry insight overtime. He is known to have one of the most extensive personal shoe collection on the entire east coast. Calling him a sneakerhead wouldn’t do any justice. He’s bigger then that. Just look at this collaboration with the upscale boating shoe company, Sebago. His shoe versatility is unparalleled. Sebago’s Docksides are one of the most recognized and respectable shoe prints in shoe fashion. The Seneca is an evolution of Sebago’s Lighthouse boot. The upgrade includes a reworked sole and more importantly is the leather.

The Seneca utilizes Horween Leather. Horween Leather is appropriately created by The Horeween Leather company. They are one of the oldest leather companies in America, in existence since 1905. Based out of Chicago, Illinois, in the 50′s started being the exclusive supplier of leather to be used to make footballs for the National Football League. Even today Wilson Sporting Goods is one of their largest customers using Horween Leather to create NBA basketballs and NFL pigskins. Even though it’s made from steer hide. This collaboration is one I’ve been waiting for impatiently and I will surely do my best to get my paws on the dark brown edition of the Seneca.
