It’s about time that Ronnie Fieg give us a preview of what he’s been up to for this coming Spring 2017 season. The KITH founder has been quiet as of late on the footwear front after that KITH x NAKED x adidas City Sock 2 release, but it looks like he’s returning to his roots with an upcoming ASICS retro. You might’ve forgotten all about the ASICS Gel Diablo (hey, so did we) but that’s what Ronnie’s here for – to remind you that ASICS has an endless supply of noteworthy retro offerings that you didn’t even know existed.
The silhouette fits right into the current trend of bulky, dad-like retro running offerings that are scattered throughout the release slate. Even Kanye’s upcoming YEEZY runner takes inspiration from this era of running models. The Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Diablo collab features the usual array of premium touches with nubuck, suede, and sports mesh each complimentary through earthy tones of light brown, grey, and slate blue. Clay red peaks through for some added vibrancy while that circular midsole adds some notable chunk. No word yet on a Release Date or color story, but stay tuned for mroe info.
