Kith’s Ronnie Fieg Is Bringing Back This ’90s Retro Runner

Kith founder Ronnie Fieg has a new Asics collaboration brewing.

Fieg’s latest limited-edition drop brings back the Japanese athletic brand’s oft-overlooked Gel-Diablo sneaker. The running silhouette debuted in 1995 and has been absent from retail shelves for decades — until now.

This collab features a neutral-colored upper with accents of blue and red reminiscent of Fieg’s previous “Volcano” Gel-Lyte 5 and “Flaming” Gel-Lyte 3. The designer shared a full look at the unreleased shoes Thursday.

Another early look at the Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel-Diablo reveals “RF” branding on the shoe’s mesh tongue tongue.

Other 2017 Fieg collaborations include February’s “Bloodshot” Bullet with World of Niche) and a women’s Mountain Boot with Off-White. Last year, the designer capped off December by releasing an Adidas Ultra Boost with his Kith Aspen collection.

There is currently no release date for this pair, but it’s expected to release soon.
