Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Salmon Toe’ – Release Recap
What happens when one of the industry’s most successful collaborators opens his own retail space in Brooklyn? In one sense, the answer is as simple as clicking on the jump below these words so you can see all the images from this weekend’s Kith grand opening and the instant sellout release of the Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Salmon Toe’. On the other, to fully appreciate the significance of this event, you’d have to understand that the Salmon Toes were in the works for over two years and were left by the wayside in favor of other Fieg-penned collabos like the ‘Mint Leaf’ and ‘Aqua Marine’. So very much like Kith itself, the Salmon Toe GLIII is a milestone commemorating Fieg’s ascention to the upper eschelon of streetwear influencers; will he keep it fresh enough to stay on top?

this release was a joke. not even mad or surprised this time, just disappointed that i have to concede that resellers have a monopoly on any gl3 with ronnie's design, which in essence, just focuses on a classic silhouette and largely tonal CWs. not really ground-breaking stuff. pretty sure i won't be the only one moving on and focusing my attention on other releases from here on in. $1000+ for sneakers is just not sustainable. congrats to those who copped at retail and will actually wear them.
Although the shop has 'No International shipping' which is a bit 1970's isn't it? All i knows is if i had a shop, i'd have to be doing pretty well(especially in this economic climate) to put a restriction on selling my product to the other 98% of the world... just saying.
Coolo jacket, but matched with the sneakers is a bit o overkill. I dont have these and probably wont get them but i agree they are super nice, and respect to Mr Fieg for doing his thing... If you camped out and put in the hard yards to get these for yourself, then well done i respect you. If you lined up just to re-sell(for profit), you should be ashamed o yourself and your no friend of mine.
I think I'm giving up on this Ronnie Fieg ish. Spending weeks in a delusional stupor coz you think you'll pick up an amazing pair of shoes for (quite) cheap and then the website crashes, coming back online with only size 6s left -___- # Unless there's a technique to it, grabbing these online is like a lottery.
hahaha! I dont rock skinny's because it's not my thing, to each is own. However! i do have a problem with my man in the first pic that turned his skinnys into quarter length skinny jean shorts by rolling them up to his knees lmao! #Dead
I know right. Got dudes on ebay selling em for like 500-1000. WTF?! I hate people like that! Let the real sneakerheads get a pair!
