For a little bit now, Ronnie Fieg has been teasing via his Instagram account the second installment of his Volcano inspired collaboration with Asics. The first released back in the fall of 2013 courtesy of the Gel Lyte V; four years removed the color scheme has returned but after some self thought, Fieg found that the colorway would be prime for the Gel Lyte III and his assertion was correct.
“Through this colorway I re-introduced the Gel Lyte V, which was a risk, but one that was necessary to take to push the market forward. Back then I remember thinking how strong that colorway could have been on the Gel Lyte III, but also felt that too many people were hopping on that silhouette,” – Ronnie Fieg
The colorway does return with an assist from the Asics Gel Diablo. A silhouette that Fieg calls “elusive”. But that is no longer and playing off the Diablo’s namesake, coupling it with the ‘Volcano’ color scheme…it was the perfect match. Fieg’s two newest Asics collaborations drop this Friday, April 21st at KITH shops and online at KITH at 11 am EST.
