Presenting the exclusive Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte V “Volcano.” This archival 90′s Gel Lyte V runner from ASICS was re-interpreted to reflect Kith’s current state of expanding not only as a shop but now as a full on brand by growing out of its “active stage” and to its future state of eruption.
Named the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte V “Volcano,” this special lace-up sneaker features a strong mix of high-grade nubuck, sport mesh, pigskin, neoprene and 3M detailing.
“I feel honored to have been selected in being part of bringing back this early 90’s runner to the marketplace. This archival model from ASICS is a unique tech runner that I was excited to get my hands on to mark the second year in business for Kith,” stated Owner/Designer Ronnie Fieg.
The shoe starts with a Pink neoprene stretched tongue with matching striped detailing running along the side panels. Red and Burgundy color blocking intertwine around the upper in premium nubuck and pigskin, with a wavy overlay on the eyestay, which runs from the front to the heel and is executed in a bright Red pigskin to really break up the shoe. A Burgundy sport mesh toe stretches below along the sides of the shoe, while the back heel is seen made up of Navy “ASICS” branding and with a single stitched Orange panel around the achilles. An Off-White midsole with pink waved detailing separates the shoe from the Red, Off-White and Navy outsole below. The contrast between colors is what makes the shoe so unique. Check out the full shoot here.
The shoe will release on November 16th, 2013 at 11am in very limited quantities at Overkill for EUR 140.-
