Release Info: Saturday, June 1, 2019
Available online and in-store at our Boston location at 10am EST on a first come, first served basis
The evergreen Gel Lyte III serves as the canvas for the latest collaboration between Asics and seminal footwear publication Sneaker Freaker, the Gel Lyte III Tiger Snake.
A tribute to Sneaker Freaker's native Australia and Asics' Onitsuka Tiger heritage, the Tiger Snake takes its name from the distinctive banded coloring of the highly venomous species native to southern Australia.
The Gel Lyte III design features a luxurious, cowhide leather upper, with microsuede toe panels and suede tiger stripe branding adding extra opulence. A beige, black and high visibility pink color palette mimic the mix of natural camouflage and unmistakable striped banding of the tiger snake. An apparently subdued part of the landscape, before striking suddenly, the Asics x Sneaker Freaker Gel Lyte III perfectly captures the essence of its predatory reptilian muse.
