Ronnie Fieg continues his extensive relationship with Asics as Kith continues to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Ten years ago, we released the “Salmon Toe'' & “Leatherback” GEL-Lyte III’s to coincide with the opening of the original Kith Manhattan & Brooklyn stores and a decade later, these colorways are reintroduced on the iconic GEL-Lyte V silhouette.
This marks the first time Fieg returns to the GEL-Lyte V silhouette since 2015. The model retains its classic elements while reimagined through Kith’s 10th anniversary lens. Pigskin suede is seen all throughout the upper, while “Salmon Toe” and Leatherback” colorblocking sits on a rubber midsole and outsole. Both shoes feature the 10 Year KXTH branding on the sockliner and debossed on the heel as an homage to its placement on the original GEL-Lyte IIIs. Tonal Fieg and Asics branding on the tongue nod to both partners, and lastly, each colorway comes in a custom box that represents the iconic Asics stripes as well as a KXTH dust bag.
Ronnie Fieg for Asics GEL-Lyte V “Salmon Toe” & “Leatherback” releases this Friday, November 26th at Kith Paris, 11AM EST on Kith.com & 11AM CET on EU.Kith.com.
