Ronnie Fieg has announced that two new Kith stores will be opening its doors soon and to mark the occasion, the retailer has prepared two special Asics Gel-Lyte 3 collabs.
The Kith founder took to Instagram yesterday to tease the forthcoming “Super Orange” and “Super Yellow” Kith x Asics Gel-Lyte 3s, which will launch later this year for the opening of the new Kith flagship stores in Los Angeles’ Beverly Hills and Miami’s Design District, respectively.
The “Super Orange” pair dons a tan-based color scheme that’s offset by vibrant orange stripes. The “Super Yellow” makeup is predominantly dressed in grey, with yellow stripes on the sides. Fieg also confirmed that the sneaker includes an update, but the specific details behind the changes were not revealed.
Release details for the “Super Orange” and “Super Yellow” Kith x Asics Gel-Lyte 3 collabs have yet to be announced by Fieg or Asics. Check back soon to Sole Collector for official updates in the coming weeks.

Dubbed Gel-Lyte 3 Remastered, the project includes a number of changes to the silhouette to better match its 2007 version.
