ASICS X OFFSPRING 20TH ANNIVERSARY - GEL-LYTE V
Following the success of OFFSPRING and ASICS ‘Desert Pack’ collaboration, the brands join forces again to spin an entirely new concept; opening the OFFSPRING 20th anniversary celebrations with a bang.
Twenty years ago, OFFSPRING was the first sneaker store to grace the cobbled street of Covent Garden. So, in honour of this occasion, OFFSPRING have teamed up with ASICS to present an update on the popular GEL-Lyte V profile. Drawing inspiration from those very cobble-stone streets and famous Piazza responsible for erecting the very first OFFSPRING store.
The new limited edition GEL-Lyte V is no exception to the ASICS style rule. Rich beige suede’s and nubuck go hand-in-hand to replicate the off-white stone that paves the novel Covent Garden market stalls. The lining nods towards the original 1996 OFFSPRING branding colour palette, and the bespoke cobbled street sock liners create the first of a two-part ASICS collaboration, to celebrate the OFFSPRING 20th anniversary this year.
The personal finishing touch comes in the form of an ASICS stamp and Japanese symbol '=+', meaning 20, on the sock and lace tips; a subtle reference to the Japanese heritage of ASICS.
The Gel-Lyte V will be available only in OFFSPRING from this month! We want a pair of these on our feet so bad! What do you guys think?
