An Official Look At The Ronnie Fieg X ASICS Super Green Pack
This week is going to be a great week for a lot of ASICS collectors. After the legend of the '750 pairs still hidden in a secret vault deep below the KITH store in NYC' was teased, then confirmed, then beefed up, the shoes that legends are made of have been given official images and a release date.
Expounding on the initial collaboration in a blog post, Ronnie Fieg spoke of the Gel Lyte III's meaning to him and how the shoe's futurist execution in its early '90s salad days poised it to be easily fused with the modern Gel Nimbus:
'... I believe I have earned the respect of the Gel Lyte III enough to evolve it to the next level in a very limited once-in-a-lifetime fashion. And like many of you, I was and will always be skeptical of fusion silhouettes, however, the Gel Lyte III is an anomaly because its design was so ahead of its time in 1990. To see this upper mesh so seamlessly with ASICS’ top-of-the-line performance tooling today simply proves how timeless of a silhouette the Gel Lyte III is.'
The Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte 'Super Green' pack will be released at the aforementioned stores on May 21, but Fieg is giving attentive fans two chance to cop before then. One will be online, one in store, and both will pop up spontaneously this week.
