Words about http://ronniefieg.com” target=”_blank”>Ronnie Fieg‘s next http://asicsamerica.com” target=”_blank”>ASICS project first got out earlier this month. Now, the fruition of that particular collaboration is finally here, the http://freshnessmag.com/2013/02/11/ronnie-fieg-x-asics-gt-ii-high-risk/” target=”_blank”>ASICS GT-II “High Risk”. A design with double meanings, the “High Risk” nomenclature described the apprehension on Fieg’s part to use the color purple, a palette difficult to apply correctly even under the best of circumstances. The name also has its source from the red http://pantone.com/” target=”_blank”>Pantone color Fieg used, something which counterbalanced the moody presence of purple.
A mix of soft pigskin on front and sturdy leather work around the back, along with a perforated leather tongue and 3M reflective overlay, the shoe rests on a Gel cushioning footbed for optimum comfort. Originally available exclusively as a KITH NYC “Kithstrike” online, the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS GT-II “High Risk” is now available in limited quantity through http://kithnyc.com” target=”_blank”>KITH NYC as an in-store purchase only.
