As Editor in Chief of the online lifestyle magazine Culture Shoq, it should come as no surprise to see Ronnie Fieg teaming up with Asics to release a pair of kicks honoring the blog site. We saw such a thing last year when Ronnie used the Culture Shoq name and colors in the Asics “Trilogy” Pack, which he also invited High Snobiety and Nice Kicks to get involved in. This time though Culture Shoq rides alone as Ronnie’s designed yet another Gel Lyte III to honor the site.
Although detailed images aren’t available yet to give us a look at the entire shoe, we can clearly that this pair sports a darker look compared to the Gel Lyte III in the aforementioned Trilogy Pack thanks to a black nubuck upper. The purple, grey and white accents however remain in tack, since in fact they are the official colors of Culture Shoq. From what we can see at this time, these look pretty close to the sample version of the Culture Shoq Gel Lyte III from the Triliogy Pack that Ronnie auctioned off on eBay to benefit Wyclef’s Yele Fund after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, with a few minor differences to set the two apart (photo provided after the jump).
We’ll be sure to keep you in the loop when more photos and a release date are provided.
