As sneaker designer Ronnie Fieg tells it, his obsession with a certain form of herb predates all others, including his love of sneakers. The light aromatic scent of mint leaf, instead, brought on a sense of love and family tradition. Reminiscent of his childhood summer in the small Israeli township of Zichron Yaakov and time with his grandparents, Fieg designed the next addition to his ASICS collaboration, the Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel-Lyte III Mint Leaf. Constructed in nubuck to create the vibrancy needed for the mint green colorway, the ASICS Gel-Lyte III Mint Leaf rests on top of midsole in light grey and a dark grey outsole, a gradual contrast to create definition. Set to release this Friday, July 15th, at David Z. flagship store in New York City, the limited edition will also be available at David Z. online store with a unisex size run of US 4.5 to US 13. Do expect a massive turnout at the launch but while you're marking down the date on your calendar, check out these detailed shots made by Sean Munro.
