Launch 23rd December 2015
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.
Labeled as a “What The” finish as well, the sneaker is essentially defined by the amalgamation of thirteen previous iterations to create a multicolored mismatched pair of shoes. Notable renditions consists of elements from the Salmon Toe, Flamingo, Leather Back, Cove and New York City to name a few. Predominantly comprised of suede, leather, mesh and other materials, the sneaker flaunts a unique mixture of colors that vary from dark to light.
Additionally, this unique pair is rounded out with RF branding embossed on the heel counter, in addition to thirteen individual laces from previous models that comprise the model’s distinctive design.
