If you said you were going to apply a Patta x Parra colorway to an Asics retro runner, longtime collectors might take umbrage with the idea and remind you that in fact, the Dutch artist’s red/yellow/blue combination dropped on the Gel Lyte Speed two years (and a host of new sneakerheads) before their epic Nike Air Max 1.  But this new Asics Gel Lyte III custom by Julien Swoosh is quite clearly aligned to that AM1 and not the LyteSpeed, its burgundy suede upper adding color complements that end up squarely in the neighborhood of that coveted AM1.  Click in to see the detail involved and let us know how these ‘Patta x Parra’ custom Gel Lyte IIIs compare to their muse.

Yeah right. If these were to ever be a collab with Patta, niggas will be trading in any and all their recent asics collabs for these. "I trade you my Volcanoes, Flamingos, Selvedge Denim, Cervidere, Wildcats, Urban Camo, Brick & Mortar, Three Lies and Coves for your Patta/Parra."

These are fire! Better than the AM1 if you ask me. I wish they were a release. Would be my first pair of Asics.

@donadamsky hmmm. Are you certain? Because stores like Hanon-Shop posted images and had future release dates and suddenly all were pulled. You can't even find the shoe listed under "Patta" in the brand section of most sites I've checked. It felt to me like they ran into the CNY Holiday or another manufacturing/shipping problem and had to push the date forward to unknown.

Man I hope you're not right cause those were/are still(for me) one of the hottest shoes I've seen released this year.
