Known for it’s easy looks and comfort, Asics’ Gel Lyte III has been the popular choice for many collaborations in recent years. In 2011 the sneaker was the choice of a number of collaborations including the very popular and hard to find version from Zillion featured here.
The kimono manufacturer took its Japanese heritage and integrated it into the design. The Ivory coloring and usage of Japanese Chirimen fabric were derived from ceremonial kimonos. While a light beige honeycomb pattern was featured on the midsole to create a snow-like illusion. Other special details came in the form of Zillion logos featured on the insole and heel, wooden hangtags and alternate laces set in a unique wood box.
Some of the cleanest examples of the Gel Lyte III ever created what are your thoughts of this collaborative effort?
