We’re getting closer to the end of the 25th Anniversary of the well known Asics Gel Lyte III model. For the 11th collaboration, Asics Tiger will be working togethet with the Scottish retailer Hanon Shop to develop the “Solstice”.
It’s always a good sign when these two team up, remember the Gel Lyte III “Wildcats” or the GT-II “Northern Liites”? Clearly two of the best pairs that have hit the market.
In this occasion Hanon and Asics have created with out a doubt the best pair of the anniversary. Using a blue azure premium suede and purple nubuck on the upper, inspired by the longest and shortest days of the year, also called Solstice, remembering so the cold and dark winters of Scotland. Featuring the symbolic flame logo on both heels, a branding on the tongue patch, 3M on the tiger stripes and perforation on the toe box, give a finishing touch to an astonishing pair that you can’t miss out on.
This pair clearly reminds us of their collaboration back in 2011 called “Wildcats”, using similar materials on the upper and even if on their last collab they used another color way, the color blocking on the “Solstice” is the same.
Keep posted for more information about this amazing release that will be hitting retailers worldwide on November 28th and will include a special box instore at Hanon.
