COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT x Asics GEL-Lyte III
First spotted on the Paris fashion runways the COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT x Asics GEL-Lyte III has finally dropped in all its abstract goodness. Read below to find out more…
Teaming up with Asics, COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT add a bold new twist to the now iconic GEL-Lyte III silhouette. Coating their breathable nylon base and foam midsoles in a multi-coloured camo print, the sneakers take vibrancy to the next level spanning a variety of vibrant tones, ranging from pink, orange, blue, yellow and red. Layered with paired back suede panelling for additional structure and support, the classic ‘tiger stripe’ detailing synonymous with the brand cane be found to both the lateral and medial side for a familiar and instantly recognisable look.
In a move which could be seen as celebrating the sneakers 30th anniversary, the GEL-Lyte III Offers up an array of subtle branding that congregates toward the rear of the shoe. In a more subtle move, the collaborative venture offers up a never before seen variation of the models split tongue construction. Inspired by the GEL-LD RACER, this iteration takes on an asymmetrical application, with one side wrapping across the other for a snug, comfortable and unique fit.
The COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT x Asics GEL-Lyte III is available at Aphrodite now.
