ASICS Tiger and the UK sneaker retailer Size? have joined forces to create the “Far Side of the Moon” Pack, which consists of a Gel Lyte III and Gel Lyte V, dropping on February 10th exclusively at the different Size? locations and priced at 110£.
ASICS Tiger and Size? have teamed up once again for an exclusive collaboration inspired by the space programm and the suits of the USSR astronauts, which on October 4th 1959 took the first ever photographs of the far side of the moon. To get to see the impossible back then was a huge step for humanity and ASICS and Size? have tried to honor that moment with this pack.
The Gel Lyte III features a black and grey colorway on the upper on a off white-greyish midsole and the Gel Lyte V is crafted of an olive-brown upper on a full black midsole.
Both pairs feature a mix of suede and hairy suede on the upper, a material we’ve seen already on recent ASICS collaborations like the one with Mita or Invincible.
As a finishing detail both pairs of the pack have “Luna 3” branding on each shoe.
Personally I’m very excited about the pack ASICS Tiger and Size? have crafted. Even if I like one pair more than the other, I gotta admit the overall pack including the special box is outstanding.
I’m very keen on the Gel Lyte III, I like the simplicity of the colorway and especially the material choice of the hairy suede troughout the upper.
I guess I would just have made the midsole in an off white or beige, to avoid such a contrast, but regarding the theme they made the right choice. I really hope to get my hands on the Gel Lyte III including the special package.
The size? x ASICS Tiger “Far Side of the Moon” pack drops online and at selected Size? stores on Friday 10th February. The first customers in row at Size? Manchester, Meadowhall, Carnaby St, Amsterdam, Paris and Bordeuax to purchase one of the pairs will have the chance to get the special box including patches and pinsets like on the picture above.
The Gel Lyte III is priced at 105£ and the Gel Lyte V at 110£.
