Over the years, Ronnie Fieg has proved his prowess on a variety of silhouettes from a range of brands storied and new alike. Still of all the silos, his work on the ASICS Gel Lyte III is perhaps marveled most by fans.
Though retro running has long been of collector cache overseas, Fieg’s work on the Gel Lyte III among other runners could be credited for opening up the floodgates in the US — especially introducing intrigue to track and trail models sans Swoosh. This weekend, his work on said silo culminates with the release of the “Homage” ASICS Gel Lyte III.
As the shoe sets to celebrate his work on the revered runner, we’ve chosen to look back and revive our historic list of his stylings on the split tongue silo. Dating back to 2007 and running up to this weekend, check out a history of Fieg’s collabs on the Gel Lyte III.
Dedicated to giving the consumer their money’s worth, Ronnie’s run began with his longtime tenure at David Z. The makeup on the far left led the way, with 252 pairs of the other two colorways releasing at a party with Complex and online at David Z.
“Solid Gold”& “Stainless Steel”
Playing towards the season of style and launching during holiday time, the “Stainless Steel” and “Solid Gold” Gel Lyte IIIs packed metallic uppers and came equipped with matching bags.
