Last night while around and about NYC checking things out for CMJ I stopped by the Re:Mix Lab opening reception. The event was located inside a vacant space in the Chelsea Market and decorated with an immense number of product collaborations. This space will be holding events all the way up until sunday. If you’re in the area it would be worth your time to check it out. Also on display are hooked up versions of Hyundai Veloster’s, one even has a 3D TV in the trunk. All in all it was a great time with an awesome vibe last night, not to mention seeing DMC perform “Walk This Way” was just amazing.
Ronnie Fieg finally drops info about his latest and last release with David Z. This “mint leaf” Asics will drop July 15 and comes with a very personal backstory behind the colorway tying into Ronnie’s past and childhood. Gotta love when a shoe has a personal influence behind it. Dope execution with this shoe. In the words of Bart Scott “Can’t Wait”, For the full story and backstory behind the colorway hit up http://www.ronniefieg.com/blog/
So yesterday marked the release of the Ronnie Fieg x Asics “Ultra Marine” and as a treat Ronnie dropped a teaser pic of his upcoming and final release with David Z. These are sure to cause mass hype and look similar to the “Coves” with what looks like a clear sole. Can’t say these don’t look like go to summer kicks. Look for a release in the next 3-4 weeks.
UPDATE – Images from the “Ultramarine” recap saw added pics of this new upcoming Asics x Ronnie Fieg release as Theophilus London tries them on. These look to be a solid, simple, yet dope shoe with POP in all the right places, your feet. Can’t say I wouldn’t brave a lineup for these.
I received some exceptionally dope mail this week. The package specifically being the Sebago Abenaki from the Ronnie Fieg for Sebago collection. These shoes do NOT disappoint, not many of Ronnie Fieg’s productions do. The suede on these moccasin/boat shoes is incredible, as well as the leather lining. Amidst the slew of “Americana” products that have been released these past few years, these shoes stand out and stand alone with a fashion forward twist.
