With a gaggle of classic Gel Lyte III colabs released over the past couple of years, NYC’s Ronnie Fieg has turned his attentions to the next best thing in the ASICS line-up – the Gel Lyte V. Sidenote: apparently the Gel Lyte IV is ‘very pissed off’ at being overlooked. Offering a lighter touch and ample opportunities for chaotic colour blocking, the Gel Lyte V’s return seems perfectly timed as we progress into the 90s back catalogue. Ronnie’s trademark of effortless simplicity has also been parked in favour of a fiery concoction of volcanic rock, topped off with wispy hits of hot magma that should really wake up the neighbourhood. Hiker-style rope laces, premium nubuck and a tough mesh toebox complete the ensemble. Looks like another surefire solid gold effort from the Ronnie Fieg hit factory!
The Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte V ‘Volcano’ is set to erupt on broader shores today!
