Wale expressed his wrestling obsession in an upcoming collaboration with Villa and ASICS. Inspired by WWE's most prestigious title belt, the Intercontinental Championship, the sneaker pays homage to Wale's favorite superstars who have won the title (Ultimate Warrior, Shawn Michaels, Mr. Perfect, and more). The "IC Champion" utilizes the Gel Lyte III silhouette, with metallic gold taking over the upper that wraps around the heel. Other details include a black midsole, underlays, and laces while baby blue accents the outsole, sock liner, and overlays.
The Villa x Wale x ASICS Gel Lyte 3 "Intercontinental Champion" releases July 21st, 2016 exclusively here at 10am EST. Retail will be $160.
