We recently linked up with Brighton based graphic designer and photographer Jack Stocker to take a closer look at Ronnie Fieg’s minty rendition of the Gel Lyte V’s.
The release is somewhat of a reflection back to the original ‘Cove’ and ‘Mint Leaf’ versions of the Gel Lyte III’s released before the opening of Kith NYC. The latest take on the Gel Lyte V’s feature a premium pigskin nubuck upper, offering a durable yet slick finish. The main difference between the 2 colour ways is the toe box, with the Cove continuing the pigskin nubuck and the Mint Leaf staying true to its Gel Lyte III roots with a mesh toe box. Both pairs arrive with 3M accents, an inner neoprene sock liner and 4 pairs of laces, 2 flats and 2 ropes.
The extremely limited ‘Cove’ release will be available this Saturday the 19th of April from the following stores:
There is however no sign of a ‘Mint Leaf’ UK release as of yet.
