Ronnie Fieg’s journey has been nothing short of spectacular, taking his entrepreneurial talents from New York to the globe. Fieg’s first series of works with ASICS, the GEL LYTE III “Salmon Toe” and “Leather Back,” were key collaborations that propelled the KITH founder to superstardom. In light of KITH’s 10th anniversary, Ronnie Fieg has plans to rerelease the colorways via GEL LYTE V.
The original release of the aforementioned sneakers were several of the beginning pieces of Fieg’s collaborative portfolio. Both colorways were well-received, prompting more collaborations with Fieg and ASICS to happen. With their reappearances happening in the form of the ASICS GEL LYTE V, fans will receive a commemorative sneaker reminiscent of both Fieg’s past and future work.
In his latest Twitter post, Fieg announced that owners of the “Salmon Toe,” “Salmon Toe 2.0,” and “Leather Back” GEL LYTE III can post a photo of their sneaker on Twitter with the date visible and their email. KITH’s team will then send participants an email to hop on a Zoom panel where they’ll potentially receive an early access link to the drop, although others are speculating that Fieg will gift pairs to lucky fans, but there’s no official confirmation on that.
The KITH x ASICS GEL LYTE V “Salmon Toe” and “Leather Back” are releasing on Friday, November 26th at Kith Paris, 11AM EST on Kith.com & 11AM CET on EU.Kith.com. The price is unknown. For more ASICS releases and updates, check out our Sneaker Release Dates calendar.
