It’s been 3 years since WOEI’s ASICS “Cervidae” took the sneaker industry by storm. It made many exhausted and desperate in search of water to clear their thirst of something they wanted to own, but some couldn’t find. That’s what the European Thundra will do to you. With help from the beaming sun on your body and the reflection of the heat from the dry sand, your heart races to find some cover. Tired and parched, you go into the bushes for some shade with photos in hand that give hints into it’s location. You rest a bit before you look for the “Cervidae ll” again, because you know somewhere hidden deep within this bare land is the special prize.

I had to take a break from my current photo campaign to write about this collaboration. It’s one that many questioned whether it would ever see the light of day.

It dawns the same red, grey, white and black hues, but with some upgraded accents and details. Some of these are the tan hue to the heel tab, wood-like eyelets, marbled front outsole, leather split tongue and perforated side panels. This is definitely a more complete ‘story’ to the original and even though we will not see the OG shape from 2012, you can’t complain to what has been presented here…

My first pick-up for the year is an ASICS Gel Lyte V. It comes in a full navy upper with burgundy tiger stripes and some navy splatter on the midsole. Simple, to the point and quit nice. There is whoever two new things with this Gel Lyte V. One, it’s a ‘vegan’ make-up and two, it comes in a new box I personally haven’t seen before…
