Arguably one of Ronnie Fieg’s favorite silhouettes to rework, the ASICS GEL-Lyte III has been appropriated 25 times by the KITH founder since 2007. To celebrate the finale of the GEL-Lyte III’s 25th anniversary, Fieg has created the “Homage,” which merges together 13 of the designer’s previous conceptions.
The 13 shoes are only a small sample size in relation to what Fieg has managed to accomplish, but they were chosen based on their ability to form a cohesive-looking shoe. Each pair is accompanied by Fieg’s first authored book, 17 enamel pins, 13 mismatched laces, a swatch ring of every material used on the shoes, and 13 individual Stance socks.
The Ronnie Fieg x ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Homage” was released on Wednesday, December 23 through KITH’s Manhattan and Brooklyn locations, as well as the brand’s newly opened women’s store.
