Besides some Jordan retros and a few Nike exclusives, can you name drops commanding as much respect and hype as Ronnie Fieg’s Asics collaborations? This Friday “The Don Ron” is set to release a shoe that has been 18 months in the making — the Gel Lyte III “Leather Backs.” We have already hit you with a few previews and you already know that the quality is on point, now it’s time to set a reminder because you know these won’t last more than a few minutes. This Friday in store there will be 40 pairs available in individually numbered and laser engraved boxes at $200 apiece which will also include an American-made Kith x Asics t-shirt and wooden dog tags. You can also grab the kicks without the crazy packaging in store for $130. For those of you who aren’t in the Empire State, make sure to log on to at 11 AM EST for your shot at a pair.
