The original Ronnie Fieg x ASICS “Super Red” Gel Lyte III came out around two years ago with 252 pairs in total, since then the idea of producing a 2.0 version was tossed around. When I finally decided to produce a second style I went to work immediately, and the result is something of true quality. This time around I grabbed cues from the first shoe but knew I wanted to produce something that felt like a full upgrade, and I believe I achieved that with the new Super Red 2.0. I knew first I’d have to switch the silhouette from a Gel Lyte III to a GT-II model. The re-worked throwback features a smooth full pigskin upper, grey accents, gel cushioning and two-tone outsole represented with quality materials.
To mark how significant these shoes are, I put together a specialty site that highlights all the pictures from the photoshoot featuring model Casey Diego. She’s been a fan of my shoes since 2008 and works in fashion, so she was an easy choice to pair with these sneakers. The lovely Long Island native is extremely cool and she executed the shoes to perfection. The only way I could display the full shoot to its proper extent was through the this speciality site that you can check out here. I couldn’t be prouder of this entire project and definitely make sure you follow Casey on Twitter here.
