Just weeks after unveiling his Asics Gel-Diablo collaboration, Kith founder Ronnie Fieg has revealed another upcoming drop that’s sure to send sneakerheads into a frenzy.
Fieg’s popular Volcano concept — first seen on 2013’s Asics Gel-Lyte V release — is set to make a comeback on a new silhouette. This time around, the crimson-based colorway appears on the Asics Gel-Lyte III, which debuted in 1990.
The exact release details surrounding the upcoming Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel-Lyte III remain a mystery, but here’s what we know so far. This collab is made in Japan — a distinction reserved for Fieg’s most premium drops — and is connected to the designer’s upcoming Gel-Diablo release.
On Wednesday, Kith held a surprise release for the Gel-Diablo Volcano 2.0. Only 500 of 1,000 pairs were sold, with the remaining 500 set to be released at a later date.
Based on Fieg’s previous releases, it’s likely that both the Gel-Lyte III and the Gel-Diablo Volcano 2.0 will be released together in a capsule collection.
According to sneaker marketplace StockX, 2013’s Gel-Lyte V currently resells for an average price of around $500.
