The first Asics Gel Lyte III collaboration worldwide was created by Ronnie Fieg for David Z. in May of 2007. One year and 4 GT III collabs later, Ronnie has expanded his David Z make-up arsenal to many other successful collabs with numerous brands and has built a strong following around the globe. This time around Ronnie has decided to pull a style out of the Asics archives and work with the GT Quick. Despite other GT Quick releases popping up all over the net, Fieg was the first to work on this style designing this color-up back in September of ’07. For the GT Quick release, Ronnie has teamed up with Complex magazine for an in store event. AT THIS EVENT RONNIE WILL ALSO LAUNCH A GEL LYTE III THAT HAS BEEN KEPT A SECRET AND AWAY FROM THE PRESS.
This Thursday at 9pm there will be a friends and family celebration in the newly opened David Z shop in Times Square. For the event and the first 50 in-store purchases on Friday, there will be a high grade white leather bag and a matching purple Asics t-shirt given with purchase, each style priced at $100.00. 200 pairs per style will be available to the public on Friday June 20th on Davidz.com as well as the flag ship store.
