The Japanese brand Asics has teamed up with the in Las Vegas based sneaker retailer Feature to create a very local themed sneaker, finding his inspiration in the typical prickly pear cactus, which is found around the desert region of Las Vegas.

The pair features a mix match of materials including leather, suede and nubuck in different tan and green tones, representing the well known colors of the Prickly pear cactus, which is very common in the region of Nevada.
The collaboration between Asics Tiger and Feature that already dropped on February 14th in store and online at Feature will be available at selected Asics Tiger retailers worldwide, like I Love Tokyo this upcoming weekend.
Personally I’m not sure yet if I will cop them or not, as I’m very excited about the material choice on this one and I think it’s a cool theme to work with, but I’m always very undecided when it comes to green colors on sneakers.
Keep posted for more information and pictures of this pair!
