Editor’s Notes: Ronnie Fieg has been working with ASICS since virtually the beginning of his design career. Now, the KITH founder/owner is celebrating the 10th anniversary of his OG “Super Blue” GEL-Lyte III by collaborating with ASICS on a new colorway of the silhouette, in addition to the GEL-Fieg 3.1.
Inspired by the original "Super Blue" GEL-Lyte III, Fieg uses hairy pigskin suede for the first time ever for one of his ASICS collabs, applying the material to the new GEL-Lyte III and the GEL-Fieg 3.1. The light grey GEL-Lyte III is complemented by blue Tiger stripes and toe windows, as white embroidery plays complement throughout. The GEL-Fieg 3.1 then pairs black nubuck with hairy suede overlays and leather Tiger stripes. The sneaker also incorporates the sole unit of the GEL-Nimbus 17, coming together on a hybrid design that is the brainchild of Ronnie Fieg.
