Ronnie Fieg has done some wonderful things with various asics silhouettes. His most recent effort, the ‘Volcano’ Gel Lyte V, will receive a limited UK release this weekend at select retailers.
Created to symbolise the growth out of the current ‘active’ status of Fieg’s Kith business and mark its second year, this a fantastic rendition of such a great shape. The upper is dressed in a combination of burgundy and red nubuck, mesh and pigskin leather, combined with a pink neoprene tongue and asics branding on the side for a multi-coloured combination that blends together effortlessly. An off-white midsole and navy asics branding on the heel provide the contrast with a think round lace finishing things off nicely. Materials are of the highest quality and the execution is flawless, just as you’d expect.
Fieg has a knack for coming up with unique colour and material combinations that are a step away from those you’ll find on traditional asics releases. asics have put out some great product recently, but his work is always exceptional.
The Ronnie Fieg x asics Gel Lyte V ‘Volcano’ will be available from both Hanon in Aberdeen (10am) and Wellgosh in Leicester (09:30am), in-store only, this Saturday November 16th, priced at £120. Good luck to those braving the cold for their pair!
UPDATE: Londoners will also have a chance to grab a pair tomorrow morning at Footpatrol from 10am
