ASICS TIGER X NAKED GEL LYTE V 'HAFINA'
One of our favourites, Copenhagen-based female sneaker store NAKED, teams up with ASICS for a collaborative release of the Gel Lyte V - the first ever women's only ASICS Tiger collaboration.
You can imagine my excitement getting this news come through to my inbox, its more than obvious now that us female sneakerheads are really getting noticed by the big players in the game!
This collaborative release is inspired by Naked's hometown of Copenhagen, featuring a diverse colour palette to represent different distinctive parts of the city. Its a perfect girly combo of pastels - mint, coral and a boss rain camo, signifying experiencing late night summer sunsets in the city. Dubbed 'Hafina' the Latin word for Copenhagen, this very special Gel Lyte V perfectly reflects the city Naked is based in the heart of.
It's not only the colour palette that has won me over, featuring a nubuck upper finished with awesome pops of coral and that dark camo neoprene tongue is just dreamy! Of course it would be blasphemy for me not to mention the splatter detailing and my favourite 3M finsih on the heel.
The NAKED X ASICS Tiger Gel Lyte V 'Hafina' drops August the 5th for Copenhagen Fashion Week. The most exciting thing about this release for me, not only that it's womens only, but the first 100 customers will receive a limited shoebox engraved with the 'Hafina' emblem by our good friends over at Krate&Co! An awesome way to present this collaboration! The trainer will then drop at selected retailers on 15th August retailing at €130!
