Channelling the work of fellow Catalonian Salvador Dali, Barcelona-based retailer LimitEDitions present this inspired take on the classic ASICS Gel Lyte V runner as part of their 10th anniversary celebrations.
Taking direct inspiration from arguably Dali’s most notable work, ‘La Persistencia de la Memoria’, LimitEDitions have applied the rustic colour palette of the surrealist’s work to the ever-popular Gel Lyte V silhouette, grabbing elements from the painting and incorporating them into their contemporary design.
Constructed from a nubuck, the uppers are entirely dark brown with rust orange accenting the heel panel to replicate the Catalonian landscape, as well as the tongue which features an embroidered fly and ant symbolically applied to each sneaker in a playful nod to the artist’s renowned use of insects.
The collaborative effort is finished off with white speckled midsole with a flash of blue to represent the sky in from the Dali’s iconic piece alongside complementary patterned laces.
