In early January, Ronnie Fieg revealed a pair of Asics Gel Lyte IIIs dubbed the “Super Green“, only this particular design would never hit retail. Instead, the 300-pair run would be donated to the needy in Haiti through the Soles 4 Souls charity – an organization that has donated over 19 million pairs of shoes since 2005. Thankfully, Ronnie’s photographer Pete Forester logged the events of the donation through his camera, giving us a first-hand insight to the great work done by Souls 4 Soles and those who participate in the movement. Check out the gallery of photos below, and see the Souls 4 Soles website to see how you can lend a hand.

for all of those folks out there stricken with white guilt, ronnie fieg says you can rest easy tonight...SMH. Im really sick of celebrities and the like whoring out for headlines with "minimum impact effort, maximum media prescence" publicity stunts like this. This was clearly done entirely for positive PR, doing something good for kids of haiti was entirely secondary here. Shame on SN for giving these fucks the satisfaction of stroking their ego. Seriously, whos idea was this? Giving underprivileged youths super limited sneakers is an easy way to garner them some unwanted attention anywhere in the world (you think only first world countries are brand conscious and capable of violent jealousy?), besides the fact that if promoting Asics was not the primary goal, they would have chosen to distribute a low cost, practical shoe (such as TOMS) to as many children as possible under that same budget to, y'know, actually provide some relief?

I see the point why a lot of you are sorta hating... BUT at the end of the day he donated them with a lot of effort. so give it up for that.

I lived in ny for some time and I have a lot of respect for RF, but there are times where I question the whole kith team when they throw some curveball during release days...

kith is defo is a success select sneak shop but perhaps more transparency is needed when they do nice things like this or any release.

another dope asics release tho, well done RF !

bunch of bullshit. Glad other commentors arent idiots and know whats up. Sell and donate the proceeds. Get asics to send some GRs in the thousands not 300 pairs of your collabo shoe. Gimmie a fucking break. How can you ruin a donation, ask RF.  shit really is irritating. SO MUCH MORE THAT COULD BE DONE IF YOUR GONNA DO SOMETHING. and why the fuck do you wanna post pictures of your donating? Do it without the cameras or publicity.
