Frequent ASICS collaborator Ronnie Fieg is back at it again, finally releasing the long awaited ASICS Gel Lyte III “Leatherbacks” that have been teased again and again over the past couple of months. This drop mixes up the typical all suede technique, introducing a healthy treatment of smooth black leather along the back end, resulting in a sneaker that is much less colorful than we’re used to seeing from Mr. Fieg. As was the case for the “Salmon Toe” release, 40 pairs onsite will be available with the classy laser-etched box shown above. Given the history of his ASICS collabos, this is sure to be an instant sellout, so make sure you’ve got your calender marked for their release this Friday, November 18th at the KITH retail space in Manhattan.
