UPDATE: It seems that the explosive eruption of Ronnie's ASICS Gel Lyte V release has begun to burn foreign shores. You'll be able to catch these hot ones from Germany's Afew from Saturday, November 16.
With a gaggle of classic Gel Lyte III colabs released over the past couple of years, NYC’s Ronnie Fieg has turned his attentions to the next best thing in the ASICS line-up – the Gel Lyte V. Sidenote: apparently the Gel Lyte IV is ‘very pissed off’ at being overlooked. Offering a lighter touch and ample opportunities for chaotic colour blocking, the Gel Lyte V’s return seems perfectly timed as we progress into the 90s back catalogue. Ronnie’s trademark of effortless simplicity has also been parked in favour of a fiery concoction of volcanic rock, topped off with wispy hits of hot magma that should really wake up the neighbourhood. Hiker-style rope laces, premium nubuck and a tough mesh toebox complete the ensemble. Looks like another surefire solid gold effort from the Ronnie Fieg hit factory!
You will be able to handle these explosively hot Gel Lyte V 'Volcano' joints from this Friday, October 25th, 2013 at 11am EST. They will be dropping in very limited quantities exclusively at Kith NYC stores and KithNYC.com. Due to a huge demand there is a registration process in place so check the Kith website for full details.
