Words about Ronnie Fieg‘s next ASICS project first got out earlier this month. Now, the fruition of that particular collaboration is finally here, the 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 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 KITH NYC as an in-store purchase only.
