Utilizing Diamond Supply Co.’s iconic “Diamond Blue,” Ronnie Fieg applies his twist to the Gel Saga and Gel Lyte V silhouettes. The Gel Saga is constructed with a gritty skate mentality, as the upper uses durable micro-perforated black leather with “Diamond Blue” pigskin suede components. The luxe liner is made from supple leather for comfortable wear and the medial side features tonal 3M panels for added effect.

The Gel Lyte V opts for a more sportswear-oriented makeup and uses “Diamond Blue” as its primary tone. The upper is also composed of micro-perforated pigskin suede, but the heel wrap is made from a metallic silver “fiberglass” material, which provides a dynamic look to this jewel-inspired trainer. The form-stripes are asymmetrical, featuring white 3M leather trimmed with reflective silver on the lateral side, and vice versa on the medial side.

Both pairs feature Gel-cushioned midsole units, custom-printed co-branded insoles, rubberized patches on the heel wraps, and additional lace options. In-store pairs purchased at KITH and Diamond Supply Co. locations will arrive in custom “Diamond Blue” packaging with custom “Diamond Blue” jewelry dust bags. The release of this collection coincides with Ronnie Fieg’s 20th anniversary of being in the footwear industry, and also marks the first time Diamond Supply Co. has applied its trademark color to Asics silhouettes.
