Ronnie Fieg’s latest GL3 designs are building quite a bit of buzz amongst the cult following he has directly helped to expand, but there’s another Asics collaboration on the way before either the ‘Leatherbacks’ or ‘Salmon Toes’. We’re speaking, of course, about the atmos x Asics Gel Lyte III, a model first previewed on Sneaker News just under a month ago, and one that’s sure to have US sneakerheads dialing up their overseas connects.
