Few boutiques on the European sneaker scene command the same level of respect as Solebox. This Berlin based sneaker spot has long been the source of killer collaborations and by the looks of the teaser we’ve got here, a project with Asics is in the works. On the left we’ve got an Asics Gel Lyte III, the red hot model that just keeps gaining momentum thanks to high profile releases from the likes of Ronnie Fieg. On the right appears to the Asics Gel Saga II, a lesser known silhouette that saw a re-release in OG form this year and has also been scooped up by Patta for an upcoming release. Stick with us for more news on the Solebox x Asics project and let us know if you’re feeling this first look.

They’ve been silent in terms of collaborations since last March’s teamup with Parra and Nike Sportswear resulted in 2010′s sneaker of the year, so you know when Patta comes through with word of their latest, the sneakerhead world will stop and take notice.  The latest classic runner to feature the Dutch boutique’s logo is from Asics instead of Nike Sportswear, a return to the Japanese brand with whom they partnered for notable releases in 2007 and ’09.  And just as those drops can be seen as significant to the return to prominence of both the Gel Lyte III and Gel Lytespeed, respectively, perhaps this new Patta x Asics Gel Saga II will prove to be the jumpstart this classic model needs to earn a little more time in the spotlight.  Patta loves to use denim and corduroy and you can get a sense for what to expect from the colorway from this teaser image; any chance these will rank as highly as their excellent Air Max 1s?  Click through for more, let us know what you think and stick with Sneaker News for the December 2011 Parra x Asics Gel Saga II release date.  via Tenisfuki

We’ve seen Nike Sportswear apply all manner of updates and tech-oriented additions to its classic running lineup, but the most detail oriented sneakerheads will remind the general population that the silhouette of almost all of these models has been altered slightly as construction methods have improved.  An even smaller group, then, would be able to spot the subtle differences between the original Asics Gel Saga II from two decades ago when compared to the new models slated for release this Saturday, August 27th.  Stores like Afew will only get six pairs of each OG Gel Saga II colorway and they’ve put together a short video depicting the shift in the model’s vamp.  Click through to see what’s new and let us know if you’re going to try and secure a pair of these.
