Sneek Peek: ASICS x Woei Gel Lyte lll “Cervidae”


I think 2012 has some great general releases and collaborative projects coming out. One of those really good ones is from the 5 year old store in Rotterdam, WOEI. Mentioned in my “2012 Up and Coming“, WOEI decided to work with ASICS on the iconic model, the GLlll. Looking at the image above, you can feel a sense of warm tones being used for the make-up and looking at the deer portrait brings to mind some hiking or hunter idea. This is what I was thinking and was pretty accurate too. Just as I was about to post this, the latest Sneaker Freaker issue 24 arrived at my house and low and behold, there was an image of the shoe inside the mag….

 

When I saw the photo above of the shoe, I was quite taking by it. Never has there been a ASICS GLlll done in such a unique manner. There are so many details to look at, yet you can still make out the silhouette. Two of the most interesting elements are the stitching on the toe-box panel and the metal hiking eylets. Add the tan suede, dark brown leather, white suede accents, 2 tone round laces, a solid gum bottom, leather ankle liner and you have one of the most meticulous ASICS GLlll in years if not ever. Another interesting part of the shoe is how the heel panel has the WOEI name embossed on it. Something you may start to see more of on future ASICS collabs. There is also a short interview with the owner of WOEI by the same name in the SF24 issue.

Enjoy the image until we get some official ones and what do you think? On your feet or Not? by clicking on the  STAR voting system above the post.
