Ronnie Fieg x ASICS EX89 “New York Knicks”

Ronnie Fieg has created a compelling product with ASICS since 2007. As the two partners close another chapter in their relationship, they revisit the EX89 silhouette via a few colorways adapted to the New York Knicks.

Having never been demoted before, the return of the ASICS EX89 is historic. Fieg shared on Instagram that he found the design made for basketball last year and quickly became interested in it for its obscurity and use by the Los Angeles “Showtime” Lakers. Additionally, the model – originally the 1988 GEL-EXTREME – was the first design by Toshikazu Kayano, the creative who would go on to create the Kayano line for ASICS.

Similar to other “hot” basketball models of decades past, the EX89 maintains a clean layout through its mix of leather, suede, foam and rubber materials. Fieg’s revival of the once-forgotten silhouette offers three styles of the sleek option: a predominantly orange pair, a predominantly off-white pair, and an arrangement that animates an all-white base with Knicks-inspired orange and blue.
