Arguably one of Ronnie Fieg’s favorite silhouettes to rework, the ASICS GEL-Lyte III has been appropriated 25 times by the KITH founder since 2007. To celebrate the finale of the GEL-Lyte III’s 25th anniversary, Fieg has created the “Homage,” which merges together 13 of the designer’s previous conceptions.
The 13 shoes are only a small sample size in relation to what Fieg has managed to accomplish, but they were chosen based on their ability to form a cohesive-looking shoe. Each pair is accompanied by Fieg’s first authored book, 17 enamel pins, 13 mismatched laces, a swatch ring of every material used on the shoes, and 13 individual Stance socks.
The Ronnie Fieg x ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Homage” will be released on Wednesday, December 23 through KITH’s Manhattan and Brooklyn locations, as well as the brand’s newly opened women’s store.
An online release will occur on the same day at 11 a.m. EST through KithNYC.com.
