The time has come for the final release of the Ronnie Fieg Asics Gel Lyte lll “Mint Leaf” at David Z. If you don’t know by now, today marks one of the biggest highlights in Ronnie Fieg’s career, and the beginning of a new road for him. I’ll once again be doing a Live Blog, as usual, from the David Z flagship store in Soho, NYC. For those that don’t know, there have been folks in front of the store since early morning yesterday already camping it out. CRAZY! if you plan on going down, I would say that if you’re not there now, you will most definitely not get a pair. At the time of this picture (8:24pm), there were 25 heads already there. So, get there now or get nothing but wasted time because you waited. Good Luck to all the online campers and see everyone at the store for the live coverage…
[No International shipping is being done because of the disaster that happened at the Ultra-Marine Release]
8:38 am – Good morning everyone! I’m live and covering the event. The line is crazy right now. There are over 60+ people on the line. How many will get a pair? They better run to the apple store and start ordering.
8:48am – Here’s the list for the people that have been waiting since the morning. Over 50+ names on the cardboard paper. In this madness, you have to try and keep it civilized.
9:12am – The start of the line an it’s getting crazy. To many people here! I don’t think RF anticipated this type if queue. Madness!!
9:30am – Back of the line homie! Over 90+ people! This is insane. NYC stand up!! Only half hour before the release.
9:57am- Server Crashed already!!
10:22 – Having some technical problems uploading images. Still at the store and it’s crazy out in the front. Pairs in the store are almost gone. I can’t even get on my self. Lol
10:38am- Store is sold out. Over 100 people came. Never thought it would be like this.
As this event comes to a close we shut down the chapter of the Asics releases at David Z from Ronnie Fieg. But, it doesn’t end here. Trust me when I say there are things coming that will colossal everything he’s ever released there.
Thanks for stopping by and showing your support for the Live Blog. I’ll have the full REZ photos for Monday with a video. Much love to all that stopped by today and introduced themselves to me as readers of Blog. Respect.
For all those that got a pair, congrats. Catch you all later.
