As we all eagerly await the release information of the Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 1300 “Salmon Sole”, memories of a similarly nicknamed sneaker have resurfaced. On this day one year ago, the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte III “Salmon Toe” dropped as a part of the grand opening celebration for the Kith NYC?retail store. The extremely limited shoe featured a navy suede upper with the celebrated salmon color covering the toe box. Forty of the 72 available pair came with a matching Kith x ASICS t-shirt and a special numbered collector’s box created by Good Wood.?The other 32 pairs came with commemorative dog tags.
These shoes are still highly sought after. The Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte III “Salmon Toe” sold out within two minutes of becoming available online, and have been resold well above retail. Were you able to get your hands on a pair? Tell us your story in the comments section.
