Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Salmon Toe’ – Release Date
Until about eight days from right now, the term ‘KITH’ is/was an expression used by fans to abbreviate the title of Lorne Michaels’ Canadian cult classic skit show, Kids in the Hall. But once Ronnie Fieg’s new retail space in Brooklyn opens next Friday, you’ll start to get Google auto-completes like ‘Kith store’, because the former David Z cohort is building some significant attention with one of the most luxurious collaborative projects to date in his long-running relationship with Asics. The new Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Salmon Toe’ has an air of distinction that’s just a hair above his tonal suede designs, a premium feel thats enhanced by some of the nicest engraved wooden shoeboxes we’ve seen. A mere 72 pairs of these will be released at the Kith opening on September 30th at 11am EST, the first 40 lined up with a chance to grab the complete collector’s edition set with tee shirt and wooden dog tags. For those of you not in the NYC area, the Salmon Toes will release simultaneously at the brand new Kith website. Check out some detailed images of the ‘Salmon Toe’ Gel Lyte IIIs along with some sketches and a video showing how the packaging came to be, and let us know if you’ll be lined up in Flatbush at the end of the month.
these shits always look like assbutter in person... the pictures make every release look like sex though.
Ha. This guy has the 'how to sell hype' business model down to a tee. I respect that. He is a smart man. Fair enough having 40 pairs in store coz there would only be that amount of people lining up. But online is a different story, 32 pairs and probably 10,000 hitting refresh trying to get theirs... Gonna be mayhem! And a lot of salty kids for sure. Mostly international cats are interested in Asics collabs so that number may go down if they have the ban like DavidZ did. If only Asics had some brains to hire this guy so we could get some decent colorways on some GENERAL RELEASE numbers... his colors are just simple one color-blocked silhouettes, doesnt take a genius to come up with plain blue does it? Apparently it does coz we keep getting ugly cheap sh*t from there own designers... #HireRonnieAsics
freekin hypebeast these are like any general release colorway ,these would never sell if they werent Ronnie fag
