Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel Lyte V “Mint Leaf” & “Cove”
As mentioned by Ronnie Fieg himself, the original renditions of the “Cove” and “Mint Leaf” Gel Lyte IIIs were released before he had the opportunity to open Kith NYC. Accordingly, both for sneaker collectors and Fieg himself, the newest release from the House of Fieg is a sentimental one. Here Fieg resumes his relationship with ASICS to present two new editions of the “Cove” and “Mint Leaf” 2011 releases, with both colorways executed on the Gel Lyte V silhouette. Both versions find the modern classic done up with lush pigskin nubuck around the upper, touched with pigskin underlays for a rich, yet durable finish over time. Other details include 3M accenting at ASICS’ hallmark sidestripe, as well as a neoprene sockliner at the interior for superior fit. Look for both the “Mint Leaf” and “Cove” Gel Lyte V to drop on April 5 on Kith’s webshop, priced at $160 USD.
