foot patrol x asics gel saga ii us release info Foot Patrol x Asics Gel Saga II   US Release Info

It’s a little ironic isn’t it, that these foreign born collabo Asics pairs end up being a little bit more wider spread in the states than those cooked up on these shores (with Ronnie Fieg being the only American in recent memory to get his hands on the classics catalog). As promised, the above pictured Foot Patrol x Asics Gel Saga II will indeed be making its way into the world beyond the doors of that UK shop, with a good number of American shops hosting the release this Saturday, October 13th. Click through with us for additional images of the Foot Patrol x Asics Gel Saga II as well as a complete list of US retailers.

Patta x Asics Gel Saga Release Recap

December 27th, 2011 by | No comments

patta asics gel saga release recap 14 570x379 Patta x Asics Gel Saga Release Recap

While US sneakerheads were going stark raving mad over the Air Jordan XI Retro ‘Concord’ release this past week, the Euro scene shifted its attention to Amsterdam where the boutique that topped many best-of 2010 lists issued their latest collaboration with a brand whose recent resurgence they can be seen to have sparked a couple years back.  The Patta x Asics Gel Saga release represented the rise of both of these brands’ status to cult heroes within certain corners of the sneaker scene, with a large yet peaceful queue starting some two days before the December 22nd drop and building up to an instant sellout that also included some dual-branded winter gloves for the lucky ones in attendance.  Click through and you can see a video profile of the event featuring Nas’ steallar ‘lost’ track ‘Take it in Blood’ and stick with Sneaker News for event recaps from around the world.  via EUKicks

Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Saga II ‘Mazarine Blue’ – Release Date

December 22nd, 2011 by | 8 comments

ronnie fieg x asics gel saga mazarine blue new images 1 Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Saga II Mazarine Blue   Release Date

Ronnie Fieg has never worked for or with Nike, but there’s a clear Swoosh inspiration in this latest release.  Not only did Ronnie Fieg serve as a guest designer for this new Asics Gel Saga II in the collaborative style Nike helped make central to the modern sneaker landscape, but the ‘Mazarine Blue’ Gel Saga II was also released in a pattern we’ve seen eminating from Beaverton.  First off, the #kithstrike surprise release of 100 pairs Tuesday morning is both in name and practice quite similar to Nike’s Quickstrike drops, and as has been the case in several of the more popular pairs in recent years, that super-limited debut won’t be the last we’ll hear from this pair.  In fact, the bulk of ‘Mazarine Blue’ Gel Sagas will still be available when they arrive at Kith NYC on December 29th, 200 of the 300-pair limited run still up for grabs.  Will you make an early resolution to line up and get Ronnie Fieg’s last Asics collab of 2011?  Click through to see some tempting images and stick with Sneaker News for word on his upcoming projects.

Asics Gel Saga – January 2012

asics gel saga hanon jan 11 2 Asics Gel Saga   January 2012

Is Asics the reigning king of sneaker collaborations?  In terms of sheer volume, no one can match Nike’s network of guest stars, but when it comes to a brand expertly utilizing the services of designers who capture the imagination of the sneakerhead scene with both reputation and quality, no brand has come further in the past few years than the Onitsuka Tiger.  Coming off a string of hot Gel Lyte IIIs crafted by Ronnie Fieg as well as the most recent in-house standout comes another old school runner that might be looking to toss its hat into the regularly-releasing ring.  The Asics Gel Saga II is ready with two new colorways for next January, one a whited-out take on a grey OG colorway and another original with an undeniable similarity to the upcoming Patta collab.  It’s safe to say that next month will be as significant to Asics as December has been/will be for Jordan Brand; will Asics fans jump on the chance to get their kicks early, too, thanks to a pre-order currently available from Hanon?

Patta x Asics Gel Saga II – Teaser

November 29th, 2011 by | 13 comments

patta asics gel saga 1 Patta x Asics Gel Saga II   Teaser

Three Xs in one spot has a variety of pointed connotations, ranging from bowling a turkey to that quirky sheep ad currently running on Hulu beckoning you to buy virtual real estate in the net’s newly established red light district.  And while Amsterdam is famous for its own such area, it’s another part of town and an entirely different meaning that Dutch boutique Patta looks to get across with the spot-markers on their latest collaboration with Asics.  The Patta x Asics Gel Saga II is marked with its triple-Xs in commemoration of this as the third classic runner they’ve resurrected together, and if the next couple years are anything like what’s happened in the wake of their Gel Lyte III and Gel Lytespeed teamups, we’re in for quite a treat.  This pair goes with a high contrast colorway you might call Chicago-esque were it not for select bright green accents, this twist a little one when compared to the unexpected variety of materials ranging from rubberized leather to horsehair.  Click through to see a few more teaser images and stick with Sneaker News for updates including the Patta x Asics Gel Saga release date.  via HS
