Sneaker Spotlight: Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III “The Cove”

Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III “The Cove”

Although just a year old, last year’s Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III “The Cove” made numerous lists as one of the top sneakers of 2011. Fieg took inspiration from a location that he visited while in the Bahamas. A picture of “The Cove” in Atlantis Bahamas was the basis for this project.

Ronnie Fieg created this special build so that he could “express the amazing visuals through my favorite silhouette and share it with the world.”. The Gel Lyte III grabs attention thanks to a teal upper with slight accenting in the form of white and grey used throughout the upper. Premium materials in the form of nubuck and perforated pigskin suede were used to build the sneaker to ultimate standards. You can really see the different materials if you dunk them into water like the above picture, but we would not suggest doing that. Finishing off the look was a tonal grey sole, with the traditional 3M accents on the toe area and heel of the split-tongue ASICS silhouette.

Limited to only 225 pairs, do you have a pair in your collection?
