It wasn’t quite apparent that the sneaker community was seeking for a change until Ronnie Fieg’s color selections on Asics models became such huge hits. Ronnie Fieg will cap off an exciting year of Asics collaborations with the Asics Gel Saga, an original Asics runner that made its triumphant return in its original colorways. Titled ‘Mazarine Blue’ (all of Fieg’s kicks seem to be briefly named after its colorway or materials choices), this Asics Gel Saga features a rich blue upper in a tonal setting, matched with a solid black midsole. Credit Fieg for making Asics the trendiest kicks around and for putting the spotlight on these classic runners that the young generation today likely had zero knowledge of just a couple of years prior, but appreciating history is what makes the sneaker game an exciting and never-ending story. Fieg reports a December 29th release at his KITH retail spot in NYC, so check out the extra angles below and stay tuned for more information, and let us know if what you see here is better than another pair of Sagas that Fieg teased earlier this year.
