Ronnie Fieg x ASICS GEL Lyte III "Leatherback" 

Year released: 2011

Ronnie says: "I used to spend 40 hours a week just playing with the GEL Lyte III blank CAD on my computer. I have over 3,000 colorways executed on my hard drive since 2006. One night in 2009 I was on my 5th CAD and the sun was coming up. I remember getting into fights with my ex-girlfriend, she used to hate when I'd wake up at 3 a.m. and start working. That night she wasn't with me, so I stayed up all night trying to come up with new blocking. Once I saw how the shoe looked after colorblocking the toe I knew I'd want that to be my trademark on the GEL Lyte III. The colorway was an old one I had on deck for years, to me it was the material contrast with the premium leather, nubuck, and pigskin that made the shoe special."
