Kith founder Ronnie Fieg is back, returning to the podcast to celebrate the launch of his X-Men-themed Asics Gel Lyte 3 collaboration with Marvel, but also to survey the state of the industry. Fieg talks about the Y2K trend in sneakers, how preordering might become more common in the future, and the recent dominance of the Adidas Samba. He responds to the critique about the “Kith Filter” look to his rollouts and gives his take on the ascension of Teddy Santis and Aime Leon Dore. At the top, cohosts Joe La Puma, Brendan Dunne, and Matt Welty talk about Nike’s lack of good collaborators and why a Spiridon retro is needed. This historic episode marks the 100th video episode of the show and also a slight shift in the naming: the Complex Sneakers Podcast will be henceforth known as the Complex Sneakers Show.
