The Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte V – Rose Gold and Sage are priced at $160 each. Both pairs will be available this Saturday, August 30th, at the Kith Pop-Up Shop at 66 Bleecker St., Kith Brooklyn at 233 Flatbush, and online at KithNYC.com.

The Rose Gold contains pigskin suede for the upper, as it takes color unlike any other material, as well as an added second pantone to the crossing stripes for a bit more depth. The 3M formstripes are asymmetrical, featuring white on the lateral and blue on the medial, to give this makeup a bit of a twist. The heel counter is a material Ronnie has never used before, and contains a subtle scratched-detailing that adds a whole new design element to this model. The inspiration behind the Rose Gold was of a photo Ronnie had taken of the sunrise during a flight home from the West Coast.

The story and concept behind the Sage is solely the materials. The execution is very detail-oriented, and need to be seen up close to grasp the effect the materials have. Also, none of the colors seen on the Sage are ones Ronnie has worked with to date. The pigskin upper combines a microperforated sage-colored vamp with sea green overlays. Premium white leather is used for the heel wrap, while the lower heel counter utilizes the same “scratched” material seen on the Rose Gold. The Gel Lyte V’s sockliner has been a point of difference for the silhouette, so an all-new open mesh material has been used to amplify it as much as possible. The aqua blue formstripes and heel tab are also a new material, and faintly display a subtle safari print that is only visible up close.

“These shoes ultimately represent the evolution of what I have done best with Asics in the past, which is a more monotone story. Now, you see multiple different tones and hues that all mesh very well together. It took me quite a few attempts to sort out how I wanted to execute these colorways, but I am more than happy with the result. When I sit down to work on a shoe absent of any concept or story to build around, and I am able to just work with colors, that’s when I create my strongest ideas”

Currently residing in New York City, Tyler Glickman is PONY Footwear’s content creator/coordinator. Whether it’s handling social media, blogging during trade tradeshow season, or throwing an assist to the marketing squad, he’s got it covered. We took some time to ask him a few questions on his current wardrobe, how he got to the position he is currently in, some advice for anyone out there trying to get into this industry, plus some extras. Did we mention he’s only 23? Keep up with Tyler via his IG for the latest and check out the full interview down below.DSC_1828Full Name: Tyler J. Glickman
Age: 23
Company: PONY-US

MN: Whats up Tyler, can you tell us how you got started off in the footwear industry?

Tyler: “I have always been fond of footwear ever since a very young age. I wrestled for the first 18 years of my life and had a huge collection of wrestling shoes (probably over 100 pairs) before I really got into sneakers. My good friend and wrestling partner (Sean Rutan),  was a huge influence for me in getting into wrestling shoes and later on, other types of footwear. I collected special German colorways back from the mid 90′s, mainly Adidas or asics along with a bunch vintage and rare stuff that were very hard to find. Sean and I were known on the mats for our shoes that we would find. My favorite pair(s) i had were the 1996 ‘Adidas Adistar’ which were Kendall Cross’ signature shoe. (1996 American Olympic Gold Medalist) or a pair of Adidas Equipment Combat Speed in teal, pink and yellow. These came out in the mid 80′s and said “Made in West Germany” right on the tongue, which was pretty cool because by the time I got them, in the early 2000′s, there was no “West Germany” anymore. I know both of these are worth a pretty penny now-a-days. Around the mid 2000′s is when i really started to get into sneakers. The silver box era for NIKE SB started it off. The Nike SB Low “Bison” was my first SB and since then, I’ve been collecting ever since.

Tyler: I am now currently the content creator and coordinator for PONY footwear. I do our social media, blog along with tradeshows and assist with all marketing projects for the brand. During college, i worked at Footlocker as a sales associate. My collection grew a large amount during this time (thanks to that discount). Leaning a lot about what goes into making, producing, and the functioning of the shoes while at Footlocker, I left the footwear industry as a whole and pursued a job at Movado in the watch industry for two years, helping with design, marketing and social media. About a year ago, I was offered the job here at PONY and left Movado. I was brought on board to help relaunch the brand from the ground up. Since then, we have released collaborative product with Atmos NY, Colette Paris, WISH Atlanta with many more in the works.

MN: What pair of shoes are you currently on the hunt for?

Tyler: I had a pair of the 2006 Nike SB Blazer “Supreme” in white but sold em a while back. Would love to get my hands on a pair of the black or red ones.

MN: What brands are you currently rockin’ with?

Tyler: Nike Sportswear, specifically the “Made in Italy” stuff, Supreme, Alexander Wang and Levi’s.

IMG_5402

MN: What’s one of your most memorable/favorite accomplishments  the sneaker industry?

Tyler: To experience first hand the rise of the PONY brand again. There is so much heritage and history behind it. I am very  to be apart of the team. 

MN: Advice for anyone trying to get into the footwear industry?

Tyler: To know that is a very small industry and word gets around quick.Don’t jerk people because it will come and bite you in the ass.

MN: Dream job in the footwear industry?

To put my ideas for footwear to life.

Vans and the fine folks at Carhartt W.I.P. have tag teamed the infamous Era silhouette, and the resulting Fall/Winter 2014 offering will have even non-camo fans clamoring for that online order. Speaking of camo, the unusual camo featured here dates back to 1953 and the US Marine’s that rocked it. A crisp white sole and leather lining keep these looking fresh while an orange stripe spices the lining up (a shame it’s covered up when they’re on your feet). You can cop these, along with a Mitchell Camo themed series of accessories now, make that move with the swiftness.
