ASICS Gel Lyte III x Ronnie Fieg "Salmon Toe"
The once 'sample only' shoe that kicked off the now notable KITH NYC.
You may have heard of his name from a few years back but Ronnie Fieg has been collaborating with ASICS since 2007. His relationship with the brand has given us remarkable collaborations over the years, one of which is the special pair I am about to share with you.
This pair kicked off Ronnie Fieg's KITH NYC in Brooklyn, New York and to make the grand opening extravagant, he decided to make the once scrapped sample of the Gel Lyte III into a reality.
72 pairs were released in the store's grand opening last September 30, 2011, the first 40 pairs of which will be the numbered collector set.
They came in a highly detailed special wooden box and a dog tag set courtesy of people from Good Wood as well as a co-branded KITH and ASICS t-shirt.
The shoe features a predominantly navy blue upper with the white arch branding, and of course the notable salmon pink toe box. Materials consisted of high-grade nubuck, leather and pigskin.
Now one of the most sought after collaborations of Ronnie Fieg, the Salmon Toe will now cause a huge dent on your funds, especially if you're planning to get this collector's set... If you still can find one.✌️
