My first pick-up for the year is an ASICS Gel Lyte V. It comes in a full navy upper with burgundy tiger stripes and some navy splatter on the midsole. Simple, to the point and quit nice. There is whoever two new things with this Gel Lyte V. One, it’s a ‘vegan’ make-up and two, it comes in a new box I personally haven’t seen before…

ASICS x Good Will Out Gel Lyte V “KOYO”


asics good will out KOYO

About time someone jumped into the arena with a ‘Really GOOD’ ASICS collaboration in 2014. So far, in my humble opinion, it’s been a very disappointing ASICS x (insert brand here) collaboration year. Everything has been boring, and ugly; shoes that had me plenty of times saying, ‘What The Fuck Is That?”. Well, except for the re-launch of the Sneaker Freaker ‘Alvin Purple’ and a couple of the BAIT collabs. Anyway, The Good Will Out came through nicely with this make-up and story behind it’s color-way dubbed, Koyo (Colorful leaves are to the Japanese autumn what cherry blossoms are to Spring.

Release INFO: ASICS x Ronnie Fieg Gel Lyte V “Rose Gold” & “Sage”


ASICS x Ronnie Fieg Gel Lyte V Rose Gold & Sage

The next release of endless releases from Ronnie Fieg with ASICS is here. It comes as a double launch with one that is a re-hash from one of his previous shoes and another that looks like he got the idea from the wet ASICS Gel Lyte lll “Cove”. First up is the Gel Lyte V “Rose Gold” colorway that mimics his GTll; you can read my breakdown of the two shoes here. Aside from the differences I wrote about, there is nothing really here to be excited about; other than missing out on it the first time around. Personally, I prefer the GTll. My biggest complaint would be with the hue of this release. It doesn’t match the OG at all. It looks dull here and a bit more orange. This was also an issue with the recent Gel Lyte V “Mint Leaf” and “Cove” releases which were a bit off when compared to the OG make-ups. The other issue is the abundance of that blue hue. There’s just too much of it here. So if you have the GTll “Rose Gold”, you still winning. Again, this release feels like it was meant for the people that missed out on the first one. I’m good with the OG, thank you….
