RONNIE FIEG X ASICS GEL LYTE V “THE COVE”
After the excellent “Volcano” release, Ronnie Fieg and his team of collaboration masterminds have teased the internet population with these pictures of the Gel Lyte V with the previously successful “The Cove” colorway. In 2010 Fieg brought us the Gel Lyte III “The Cove”, which is still a highly sought after model by many RF enthusiasts. Reflecting the hues of tropical oceans, the “The Cove” colorway looks right at home to balance the deep reds and oranges of the aforementioned “Volcano” Gel Lyte V. Spotted over at Sneaker Vagrant we see a few shots of Ronnie wearing this version of the Vs at KIXPO courtesy of @dubnbud.
If these were to release, we are sure they would cause just as much hype as the usual Fieg collaborations. Will this ode to a previous collaboration stimulate the frenzy to a new level however? I helped out a fellow sneakerhead get the “Volcanoes” for retail (The Volcanoes did not come in a size 13. Who do I have to talk to in order to get a size 13 around here?!) , but I will definitely be trying to my luck with internet servers again if these were to be produced.
Check out both the Gel Lyte III and V “The Cove” renditions below and let us know which one you like better. Would you try to purchase a pair of these if given the chance?
