For the past seven years, Ronnie Fieg has been collaborating with ASICS to create premium and limited-run sneakers. The “KITH Football Equipment” project began with the ASICS Gel Lyte 3 and GT-2, designed by Fieg. The two models are designed to highlight the American team’s road to trophy, and the country in which it is being held. The Gel Lyte 3 “KFE” is lined with pigskin leather and contains red accents on the left shoe, navy accents on the right, an American flag sock liner, and an all-over gold leather perforated on the vamp and quarter. The GT-2 “KFE” is all royal blue pigskin suede with gold leather stripes. The gold represents the cup itself in each of the two shoes. The GT-II version is made of premium pigskin upper and contains quality details on the three stripes on the heel of the midsole.
The Ronnie Fieg x ASICS “KFE” collaboration will release in conjunction with a wide-ranging apparel line featuring updated interpretations of classic on-pitch athletic wear pieces, KITH’s very first electronics, the KITH x Beats by Dre Studio and Pill 2.0, as well as a KITH x Stance sock collaboration and KITH x Mitchell & Ness bucket hat collaboration.
The “KITH Football Equipment” pack releases June 28 at the KITH Pop-Up at 66 Bleecker Street and KITH Brooklyn at 233 Flatbush, as well as the brand’s online store.
