Ronnie Fieg has more or less set the gold standard when it comes to collaborative editions of classics from ASICS, and it appears he's now literally making a golden shoe, as we get a look at a couple of teaser images posted on his Instagram account of a metallic gold Gel-Lyte III. As you can see, this golden Gel-Lyte III seems to take on a USA theme, with red, white and blue perforated leather accents. Whether they will indeed have a mismatched alternating color scheme or we're actually seeing two separate colorways sold seprately is yet to be determined.
Let us know what you think after taking a look at the teaser images below, and stick with Sole Collector for release information on Ronnie's golden Gel-Lyte III's as it becomes available.
UPDATE: Ronnie Fieg posted a third image of the golden Gel-Lyte III's today, with both a better look at the shoes and a little more information. Apparently inspired by this summer's World Cup, Fieg announced that the shoe will be part of a "Kith Football Equipment" collection.
