ASICS and Sneaker Freaker have a collaborative partnership that reaches all the way back to 2010, and now they’ve joined forces yet again for a new GEL-Lyte III titled the “Tiger Snake.” Check out images below, and keep it locked here for more info on other summertime ASICS releases as well.
The Asics Gel-Lyte III “Tiger Snake” begins with a base of light brown cowhide leather, accented by pinkish-orange used on the eyelets, mudguard, and on the medial logoing. The midsole and heel counter are black with a speckling of the same pinkish-orange, which is also repeated on the outsole for a finishing touch. The GEL-Lyte III logoing is done in gold that pops off the black heel counter.
The shoe comes with a custom box, pictured below, which features an illustrated graphic printed with fluoro ink infused with real tiger snake venom.
Inspired by the tiger snakes native to Sneaker Freaker’s home in Australia and ASICS’ origins as the Onitsuka Tiger company, the shoes offer a look that’s part highly venomous reptile, part majestic apex predator, and entirely unique
The “Tiger Snake” will be available exclusively from the Sneaker Freaker shop, and interested parties will need to register their email address to receive a purchase link when pairs are made available.
