A prompt follow-up to his “East Coast Project” theme, designer Ronnie Fieg will be launching his newest ASICS Gel Lyte III collaboration next month, aptly called “Flamingo.” In pastel shades of taupe, beige, and gunmetal blue, Fieg’s new design actually bereft of pink, the most notable feature on a flamingo. It isn’t a mistake, however. As any student of ornithology would know, the bird hatches with a grayish-beige down instead, only to have its signature pink feathers after a steady diet of brine shrimps and blue-green algae.
The ASICS Gel Lyte III “Flamingo” by Ronnie Fieg will be making its debut on the cover of Sneaker Freaker Germany #10 later this month. The shoe itself will be available in July 2013.
