Geez what do we have here?!
This masterpiece created by the man Ronnie Fieg for David Z. back in 2011 when the running shoe “hype” was just a four letter word and before he opened KITH. For me the Asics Ultra Marine is the most brutal sneaker possible! Everything is just perfect, from the choice of materials, the colorway and even the highly underrated Gt II model makes this pair a bangin’ classic that ranks itself amongst the best Asics ever created. The super glowing blue tone together with the sweet turquoise tiger stripes are literally hypnotizing my eyes and make it hard to stop staring at em. I remember, when released, they were available online for a couple hours, unfortunately without an international shipping option which gave me a hard time. In 2012 I found my first pair of Ultra Marines on Solecollector for 180 bucks. They barely left my feet for quite a while and were almost beaten to death very quickly. Luckily I recently scored a deadstock pair of this amazing and timeless shoe. Of course not for 180$ but I don’t regret a single dime spent on them.

Little location, pants and sock swap. In the following pic I’m wearing the Edwin ED-80 Rainbow Selvage with Blue/grey Burlington Edinburgh socks before I wore the Kith Bleecker sweat pants with Blue/Red/Grey Burlington Edinburgh socks.
