Ronnie Fieg and ASICS have teamed up to commemorate their 10-year relationship, via a collection of rare models, dubbed the “Legends Day” pack.
The capsule features six sneakers, each drawing inspiration from some of Ronnie’s most notable work. We see Salmon Toe and Militia editions across the Made in Japan GEL-Lyte III, GEL-Lyte III.I, and GEL-Mai.
The first drop will include both colorways, which appear on the GEL-Lyte III.I, as well as the Gel-Mai. A second release will follow, consisting of the Made in Japan GEL-Lyte III, which will be released at an undisclosed date later in the year.
For those not familiar with the GEL-Lyte III.I, Fieg and ASICS have been developing the shoe since 2009. It combines the upper of the iconic GEL-Lyte III with the sole of the GEL-Nimbus. For this release, it will come in Salmon and Chocolate tonal colorways, and feature pigskin suede. And, it will be the last two pairs of the GEL-Lyte III.I to ever release.
Each pair will come packaged inside a custom display box, which comes with additional laces, an exclusive set of pins, a pair of KITH x Stance crew socks and either a carabiner or a fish-shaped stress ball. Finally, KITH adds an additional surprise to its loyal customers, with the introduction of its Golden Ticket Program. Within randomly purchased pairs, there are golden tickets that will guarantee the chance to snag the Made in Japan GEL-Lyte III Salmon Toe 2.0 or Militia. Those lucky enough to open their sneaker box to a golden ticket will be provided with instructions on how to move forward.
The first drop of the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS “Legends Day” collection releases Nov. 22 at KITH shops and online.
