Ronnie Fieg and ASICS go together like peanut butter and jelly. Having been at the forefront of the retro runner craze in the late ’00s and early 2010s, KITH founder Fieg has teased yet another collaboration with the iconic Japanese sportswear brand.
This time, the designer will be working on the brand’s recently relaunched GEL-Kayano 5 OG. Originally released in 1999, the GEL-Kayano 5 was the fifth iteration of lead sneaker designer Toshikazu Kayano’s complete reimagining of ASICS’ GEL running technology in sneaker form.
Fieg’s Instagram post below only gives us a look at the heel and sides of the shoe, but his signature color-blocking is immediately evident. A white mesh base is combined with mixed-material overlays and pastel hues on the outsole, midsole, side stripes, sock liner, and tongue. ASICS and Fieg branding can be seen on both heels.
Knowing Fieg, this teaser means the collaboration will be dropping sometime in the near future. Expect further teasers and a full rollout soon. Stay tuned for more information.
