Ronnie Fieg has previewed the first of his upcoming ASICS collaborations and let on that we’ll be getting even more from him than expected this year. The lead up to this cluster of releases began early in 2016 with a tweet from Ronnie that promised to release some ASICS ‘unicorns’. His ‘Super Green’ 3.1s from May were the first, and images from his Kithland show accounted for the rest.
For the Kith 5 year anniversary, I'm dropping a few unicorns. We'll start with the Super Greens. Made in Japan.

Now, it’s looking like ‘Salmon Toe’ and ‘Militia’ (formerly known as ‘Mossad’) GEL-Lyte IIIs, along with the ‘Salmon’ and ‘Militia’ GEL-Lyte 3.1s seen on foot at the show will be arriving as promised. As per a new post from Ronnie’s Instagram, the Salmon 3.1 will be arriving on November 22 in a release he has named ‘Legends Day’.
In a lengthy ‘Food for Thought’ post on his blog, Fieg has also expounded on the release – saying that the pack will be bolstered by a re-release of the GEL-Mais. All info considered, we’ll will be getting two GEL-Lyte IIIs and two 3.1 unicorns by the end of November, and then a further two GEL-Lyte IIIs by the end of December.
Following the whole roll-out is kind of like being lead through a rabbit warren of grails – but if everything comes along as planned, it’s going to be one hell of a year for Fieg fans.
