DJ Clark Kent’s acumen in the Swoosh realm of footwear has been well documented, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a lover of all sneakers equally. Proving that point is this quick set of shots he recently fired off, putting his early pair of the next Ronnie Fieg x Asics collaboration on display. The Ronnie Fieg x Asics GT-II ‘SuperRed 2.0′ sees the Kith front-man stepping away from the split tongue designs for a second in favor of something more orthodox, again painting the silhouette with his signature dipped suede look. Let us know if you’re planning to cop and stick with Sneaker News for release info on the Ronnie Fieg x Asics GT-II ‘SuperRed 2.0′.
ok let me break it down for the real mofos that actually were buying asics back when they werent available anywhere. YOUR a fucking hype magnet if you like Jordans AND never owned asics till ronnie put some shit out. Hate all this hype bullshit. Stick with jordans and the SHIT materials but lucky for me I HATE BBALL shoes anyways. I dont have any hate for ronnie, I just HATE the limited bullshit. Put out more numbers, thas it. As for this colorway, its fucking dope, and its a great model. Nowadays niggas wanna put a shitload of colors all over the place and think shits tight. Im so happy to see asics getting love, but for all the wrong reasons. Hype hype hype. Now Im seeing all these J heads getting runners after buying Js forever. Stay wit your own shit and go rock your snapback. Real shit
for those who say ronnie fieg is over hyed and just uses basic colorways on asics is just ignorant, These are the highest quality materials you will ever see on a pair of asics or running shoes, yet these retail for 130 while you pay 180 for playoff 12's that are made of plastic. some logic.
Comment does not make sense. You say he is NOT over hyped or only uses basic colorways... because Asics have high quality materials. Those two statements have nothing to do with each other!? And also... 1. these will be limited numbers = Hype, and 2. are plain red all over = pretty basic cw if you ask me (can it get any more basic than one single blocked colour?). So it is also a completely false statement. I fail to see this 'logic' you speak of? Though they might be the highest quality on a pair of Asics, which is adequate, and would be better than a pair of Jordans(not Nike)... although here they will probably only make a small number of say 200 pairs, as opposed to JB which will make into the thousands, thus they actually therefore HAVE the need to subsidise cost buy implementing the cheaper material, i would not agree on the running shoes category comment, as New Balance Made in USA/England are generally unbeatable on material quality, and make more than a handful of pairs when doing so, unlike Asics x RF collaborations. Good luck.
$130 retail but you are highly unlikely to get them for that price if there is only 300 made.
Also this is a color way i can make with new balance 574 customize for $115 with the same material...Now the slamon toes and the leather back where a nice colorway.
Thats just IMO.
Also homie asic been throwing great materials on their shoes before roonie was even heard of ....my mom had several pairs in the early and mid 90s.
Also one reason why shoes are made with synthetic materials because they are more durable then leather and the material is cheaper.
you apparently have never seen a pair of ronnie fieg asics, if you think these are plain red all over, and you have no idea what your talking about, he doesn't use normal premium leather on these, high quality pigskin nubuck and suede, which no asics or any running shoe brand has ever used. i agree with you with the new balance London part but those retail for 190. their customs are good quality for the price but not better , these colors and materials aren't just good they're unique. he should release more pairs tho.
