Ronnie Fieg has maintained a policy of never retro-ing one of his collaborative footwear projects, but he meets his followers’ demands halfway by revisiting past “Cove” and “Mint Leaf” colorways of the ASICS Gel Lyte III on a new silhouette. The resulting Gel Lyte V models carry the same materials as their Gel Lyte III predecessors, with the Cove Gel Lyte V featuring a premium nubuck build with pigskin perforated underlays, 3M accents and a neoprene sockliner. The Mint Leaf Gel Lyte V, meanwhile, features the same buttery nubuck with breathable mesh paneling and a similar neoprene sockliner. Both pairs are equipped with signature Ronnie Fieg rope laces and a contrasting off-white midsole. The kicks are set to launch this Saturday through Kith’s online store.
