A lot has happened in the seven years since Ronnie Fieg’s first official foray into the sneaker design game. Over that span of time, he has built up his name and reputation as one of the most celebrated and influential designers in the industry, which has in turn led to the birth of his own store and brand and a wide variety of special footwear and apparel projects along the way. In an overcrowded market where each weekend offers up a seemingly never-ending supply of beloved retros, special editions and coveted collaborative projects, Ronnie has managed time and time again to create products that emerge from the pack and push their way into the spotlight.

The notion of basketball sneakers being worn for off the court purposes dates back as far as basketball sneakers themselves. Starting with models like the legendary Converse Chuck Taylor, sneakers intended for the hardwood have always found their way to the street as well, and each era since can claim at least a few iconic silhouettes that were the must-haves of their time.

More universally beloved models have come out of that era than any other, but for all the timeless classics that have stood the test of time and remained relevant, there are still tons of great blasts from the past that have slipped through the cracks and will most likely never be seen or heard from again.

The iconic Gel Lyte III has no doubt been a popular canvas for collaborations over the years, but it’s been pretty rare to see it appear as a multi-shoe pack.

As we’ve seen here in our SELECT Collections features, there are all sorts of collectors out there with all sorts of different tastes and approaches to the kind of stuff that they hunt down. While Air Jordans and LeBrons will always be a popular starting point, some individuals are more dedicated than others when it comes to the funds and legwork that they’re willing to pour in to cross off the rare and elusive items on their sneaker wishlists. While most of us just drool over photos of these high-priced and hard to find items from afar, there are those who go all in and pull out all the stops to get their hands on the kind of stuff that others can only daydream about owning.

Every major sneaker brand has at least a few timeless silhouettes that have managed to achieve classic status and remain in circulation year in and year out. And while we all love to see them in their original form, companies constantly need to explore new ways to keep them fresh and evolving.
