For those of you that don’t remember, Ronnie Fieg, the NY clothing designer/sneaker master, showed us the Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Saga “New York Knicks” last summer. Unfortunately, those kicks were a one of one sample, created by Fieg, for Fieg. Well, the boy’s done it again, pouring a truckload of salt on the Twitterverse by tweeting another pic of the very dope sample.
Now, most likely, this is just a case of Fieg breaking out an exclusive pair, 1 of (I can only imagine. And I do…) the countless exclusives stashed away in his closet; however, is it possible that this could be a teaser of something to come? Cue the “Jim Carrey as Lloyd Christmas in Dumb and Dumber” scene:
“So you’re telling me there’s a chance?”
We can dream, can’t we? Hit the jump for another pic of this NY-flavored pair (No ECP), and let us know if you’d like to see this bad boy release. Maybe, if we start a petition on Whitehouse.org, we can convince Fly Ronnie to do the world a favor and drop these in time for next spring. Get to work, internets!

Typically draped in bold colorways and neon accents as a nod to its origins in the running aesthetics of the early ’90s, the ASICS Gel Saga is set to appear in a unique color scheme later this year. Perhaps inspired by the impending hunting seasons of the year’s latter months, ASICS has crafted a predominately brown and black edition of the plush Gel-cushioned runner. Sporting brown suede hits to the mudguards, eyestay, and laces alongside black accents on the toe box and quarter panels, this edition of the Gel Saga sees a combination of forest green and bright orange accents throughout while a classic camouflage motif makes an appearance on the custom insoles. Finished with contrasting white hits to the lining and midsole, this Gel Saga is set to be available from Berlin’s Overkill this October.
The classic ASICS Gel Saga model gears up for a jungle jaunt in this upcoming edition. Amongst a canopy of earthly tones, the suede upper comes contrasted with hot flashes of burning bright orange, making for a true mid combat camo vibe.
