ASICS x Ronnie Fieg Gel Lyte V ‘Mint Leaf” & “Cove”

By LindsaySunshine

IMG_77201

So here we have it, the latest edition from the Ronnie Fieg x Asics collaboration series entitled Gel Lyte V “Mint Leaf” and “Cove”.

First of all, for those that aren’t familiar, let me tell you a little bit about the infamous Ronnie Fieg as you’ll probably have noticed his name has become almost synonymous with high profile sneaker releases in recent years.

Suffice to say, Fieg has earned his title for being one of the most prolific shoe designers of all time as his list of collaborations include some of the most well respected and sought after brands such as Timberland, Adidas, Clarks, Saucony, Harris Tweed, Puma, Dr. Martens, New Balance, Ralph Lauren, Herschel and many more. After starting work at a young age with New York shoe supplier David Z Shoes, Fieg worked his way up through the company to eventually become buyer and then head buyer, respectively, putting him at the very hub of the footwear world. Many years later in 2011 Fieg started his own store, Kith, dealing predominantly with major brands alongside his own creations and collaborative efforts. Kith has also been the exclusive retailer for a number of Fieg’s limited edition designs such as the Gel Lyte V “Mint Leaf” and “Cove” which were released on April 5th of this year but have, unfortunately, long since sold out.

In a recent publication on his website, Ronnie Fieg said:

“Over the years my friends have continually asked me to re-release some of my previous projects. The Cove and Mint Leaf ASICS Gel Lyte III’s from year’s past were released before I was able to open Kith. I would never simply re-release or “retro” one of my releases”

This was devastating news for the sneaker heads around the world, myself included, who were un able to cop a pair of the Gel Lyte III’s released in 2010/11, as they were without a doubt, two of the most stunning pairs i’ve ever seen. So you can image my utter jubilation when Fieg later went on to say that he would be re-releasing them in an updated Gel Lyte V format.

The updated “Mint Leaf” and “Cove” designs boast the same high quality materials used in the original Gel Lyte III’s with pig skin and nubuck upper with breathable mesh panelling, perforated toe box and neoprene sock, the only major difference, which has been widely disputed on sneaker forums, is …read more

Sweetpea Interview – Soul In Motion

By Hainesy

:)

If like me you make your living working the 9-5 then you might agree that sometimes by the time Wednesday comes around your already ready to let loose after work with a few drink and some drums. Well now London has the perfect mid-week drum and bass event for you.

On 7th May 2014 ‘Soul In Motion’ a new monthly mid-week drum and bass night formed by Bailey & Need For Mirrors returns to the elusive ‘Basement’ situated underneath a very classy Hotel in Central London. Word has it this month’s install is set to be very special indeed. To find out why we talked to DJ Sweetpea who is opening the night at 8PM with a very special Flexout Audio showcase.

We caught up with the lady herself

So Sweetpea firstly, tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got involved with Need For Mirrors & Bailey at ‘Soul In Motion’ ?

Hey In Reach! I’m Sweetpea and I live in South London. I’ve been djing since I was 12. I first started off (like most people) rolling it out with Numark tt1500′s and some garage vinyl. It was that first moment you hear the drums walking into your first rave when I knew I was hooked and I started collecting drum and bass vinyl properly about the age of 18. I’ve been a part of the Flexout Audio crew for about a year now, I have a remix of a Flexout classic, Taelimb’s ‘Wookie Song’ which is a free download.. Check it below!

That remix pretty much sums up my sound I have a few more remixes on the go which I am really excited about. I’ve been working on some original material for the label working towards my first EP. I play a weekly Friday show on Rudefm.com and have a residency with Flexout Audio at Plan B and Noise London both situated in Brixton where I live. When Tom Retraflex approached me to be a part of this night and rep the crew I couldn’t say no! I’ve been to Soul in Motion before and always enjoyed the unique vibe there. So 8-9pm I will be reppin’ Flexout, playing some forthcoming bits mixed in with some Sweetpea vibes!

What is it that makes this night different and why is this next event in particular very special?

The venue is beautiful, its a …read more
