Ronnie Fieg‘s latest in his line of smash-hit collaborations with running staple ASICS is set for imminent release. Two takes on the brand’s Gel Lyte V sneaker are on offer, dubbed “Rose Gold” and “Sage” respectively. Forgoing hackneyed themes and narratives, Fieg has instead opted for purely color-based concepts in a fashion similar to his “Cove & Mint Leaf” release, with typically pleasing results, as explained below:
“These shoes ultimately represent the evolution of what I have done best with Asics in the past, which is a more monotone story. Now, you see multiple different tones and hues that all mesh very well together. It took me quite a few attempts to sort out how I wanted to execute these colorways, but I am more than happy with the result. When I sit down to work on a shoe absent of any concept or story to build around, and I am able to just work with colors, that’s when I create my strongest ideas”
Both sneakers are set for release this Saturday, August 30 via Kith‘s two NYC retail locations and online store. As ever, these are promised to sell out in a heartbeat so best of luck to all the Highsnobs out there gunning for a pair.
