This Friday, Ronnie Fieg re-introduces the Asics GT Cool Express. Originally released in 1992, the GT Cool Express was an innovation in its time; marking the first time Asics released a trainer with visible GEL technology applied to the midsole (seen on the lateral side). This streamlined silhouette receives a material upgrade by Fieg, as well as a sterling blue colorblocking. The upper features a pigskin suede sterling blue forefoot with small salmon window inserts. The rear combines two subtle shades of beige nubuck complemented by tonal open mesh inner-socks. The color story continues onto the outsole, which features a gradient execution. Lastly, each pair is accompanied by three flat lace options.
The Ronnie Fieg x Asics GT Cool Express releases Friday, March 4th, at all three Kith locations and KithNYC.com at 11AM EST. Retail is $175 USD.
