ASICS x LimitEDitions Gel Lyte V ‘SurrEDaliste’

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

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.

ASICS Christmas Pack 2014

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

ASICS continue their yuletide tradition for 2014 with another festive offering in time for the holiday season.

This year’s Christmas Pack features three festive renditions applied to classic ASICS silhouettes, the Gel Lyte III and a duo of Gel Sagas.

The first GEL SAGA design pays homage to Santa and his iconic outfit, with its red upper, white sole and black stripes reminiscent of St Nicholas’s black belt.

The second SAGA adds extra warmth to the collection. Inspired by Christmas trees, wearers will think they can smell pine from the upper’s rich green colour. The white sole echoes the colour of snow-filled glass baubles, while the red stripes wrap it all up in a big silky bow.

Snowman-inspired GEL-LYTE III comes in light grey, charcoal and carrot-nose colour laces. The Mr Frosty kick is finished with a white sole and snowflake-patterned sock liner.

Release Information
Name: ASICS Christmas Pack
Colour: Light Grey/Grey / Burgundy/Dark Brown / Dark Green/Burgundy
Style Code: H42NK-1311/ H41VK-2628/ H41VK-8026

ASICS x UBIQ GT-Cool ‘Nightshade’

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Following on from their extremely popular ‘Midnight Bloom’ Gel Lyte V rendition, Philadelphia-based retailer UBIQ have teamed up with ASICS once again on this strong reworking of the revived GT-Cool model.

Taking on this distinctive runner, UBIQ took the same group of influences as they did for the ‘Midnight Bloom’, channeling their admiration for mother nature and the dark hours to create this moody ‘Nightshade’ rendition.

However, this reworking goes deeper. Nightshades are a plant family that are notorious for being highly toxic. Used throughout the Middle Ages as medicines, poisons and hallucinogens, its name is a derivation from the Old English ‘nihtscada’ meaning ‘unrecorded night’.

The trainer itself is constucted from plush grape leaf green leather uppers with a perforated toebox and neon green accents. Coupled with black hiking laces that complement the black side panel branding and a bright white split tongue that works tremendously well with the branding contrast midsole, the shoe is finished with a grey heel panel and subtle 3M hints throughout.

Release Information
Name: ASICS x UBIQ GT-Cool ‘Nightshade’
Colour: Grape Leaf/Black
Style Code: H43BK-8090
Launch Date: 16th August 2014

Offsetting light and darkness with block paneling using pink hues and natural tones contrasted with white, navy and 3M accents, this iteration showcases the Gel Lyte V beautifully.

Release Information

Colour: ‘Midnight Bloom’
