A few weeks ago Asics teamed up with branding and design powerhouse Kith and Cali's long time skateboard and streetwear staple Diamond Supply to bring an gorgeous and rather unlikely collaboration. Needless to say, the double pack blew through the doors lightning quick. The Tiger brand is now giving you another shot to cop a Gel Lyte 5 with the same flavor, just without the co-branding and exclusive design traits.
This time around the Gel Lyte 5 features a black tumbled leather upper/backing that pairs well with the teal perforated suede toe/forefoot. The shoe sits on a white and black midsole that gives way to a black/white/teal outsole. The inner lining takes the teal approach while the neoprene bootie goes all black. The branding remains white and black, keeping things uniform throughout and making this shoe a welcome sight for sore eyes.
What do you guys think of this General Release version that aims to make up for the quick and hard to obtain collaboration? Will you be copping when they drop on our shores? Let us know and make sure to stay tuned to SneakerShouts for more release details.
