Sneek Peek: ASICS x Ronnie Fieg GLV “Rose Gold”

So, it’s official. The image I tweeted a few months ago was definitely not fake (Shout out to the homie that sent it to me). Above is another photo that has been floating around for a little while too. Today Ronnie Fieg tweeted the first official image of the ASICS x Ronnie Fieg GLV “Rose Gold”. Another remake of the classic and much-sought-after-because-I-slept-on-them-the-first-time ASICS GTll “Rose Gold“. Right away you can see some big differences between this ‘new’ Rose Gold colorway and the OG. For one, the Tiger Stripes are white instead of  brown and the light blue that was behind it is missing from the GTll OG CW. The second big difference is the micro perforated toe-box, as opposed to the standard Ronnie Fieg perforated toe box.; one of his key signature on his ASICS releases. You can also find this micro-perf throughout the shoe from the heel cap suede to the side paneling of the Gel Lyte V. Third is the inclusion of the light blue hue to the ankle liner and back heel of the out-sole. The other small difference is the lettering on the heel looks white as opposed to blue on the GTll. Oh, and the ropes laces, but I don’t think that counts…

Lets talk color….The image above was tweeted by Ronnie Fieg today and below you will see a current photo of my personal sample pair. Aside from the differences I mentioned, there is one more major characteristic change. Something that is similar to what people were complaining about with the GLV Mint Leaf. The color seems to be off when you compare my photo’s hue to this new one. I’m hoping it’s the images because we’ve seen this before. A lot of times the photos RF releases don’t show the true color of the shoe and based on these captures, not mine, they look a bit too pink and bright. Again, we’ll have to wait and see more photos or when we can ultimately see them in the flesh. Until then, I prefer the Original GT ll CW over this new rendition. In a sense I’m glad it’s a bit different then the OG. So those owing them, we still winning. Right now they have a release date scheduled for the 30th of August at KITH.
