patta x asics gel saga release date Patta x Asics Gel Saga   Release Date

When you mention the phrase “Patta Air Max 1″, chances are, sneakerheads will see images of the Parra-designed number one release from the Sneaker News Top 30 of 2010.  But don’t forget that the Dutch boutique started its onslaught of Nike Air Max 1 collaborations before the turn of the year back in ’09 by coming up with five different colorways in honor of its half-decade anniversary.  This December marks lucky number seven, and again Patta has something ready just in time for Christmas, only this time the store is arguably more famous than the shoe instead of the other way around.  The Patta x Asics Gel Saga brings a big spotlight to this classic runner just after the OG colorups hit this summer, and just before a new run is set to expand the Onitsuka Tiger’s retro running offerings into the next year.  Their 2007 Gel Lyte IIIs can be seen in retrospect as critical to reviving that now well-established cult favorite, but ’09′s Gel Lytespeed bringback hasn’t had the same impact on that model’s frequency and availability; how important will this Patta collaboration prove to the Gel Saga?  Click through for a video preview of the next chapter and get ready for the December 22nd release.

You know your readership is truly global when minutes after offering a possible explanation for the X insignias all over the Patta x Asics Gel Saga II, readers chime in to fill in the details for their hometown.  Before any such assertion from the Dutch boutique themselves, Sneaker News readers informed the world that the ‘XXX’ motif on the tongue and laces of Patta’s latest collaboration correspond to Amsterdam’s official coat of arms, a design that can also be seen to lend its black and red sections to this shoe’s aggressive colorway.  All of these details in conjunction with a crazy range of materials makes for one of the year’s most interesting guest spots, and now that we have a full look at the Gel Saga II, it’s only a matter of time before we know the release date.  Click through to get an eyefull and let us know if you’ll be lining up to vie for a pair of your own.  via SF

Patta x Asics Gel Saga II – Teaser

November 29th, 2011 by | 13 comments

Three Xs in one spot has a variety of pointed connotations, ranging from bowling a turkey to that quirky sheep ad currently running on Hulu beckoning you to buy virtual real estate in the net’s newly established red light district.  And while Amsterdam is famous for its own such area, it’s another part of town and an entirely different meaning that Dutch boutique Patta looks to get across with the spot-markers on their latest collaboration with Asics.  The Patta x Asics Gel Saga II is marked with its triple-Xs in commemoration of this as the third classic runner they’ve resurrected together, and if the next couple years are anything like what’s happened in the wake of their Gel Lyte III and Gel Lytespeed teamups, we’re in for quite a treat.  This pair goes with a high contrast colorway you might call Chicago-esque were it not for select bright green accents, this twist a little one when compared to the unexpected variety of materials ranging from rubberized leather to horsehair.  Click through to see a few more teaser images and stick with Sneaker News for updates including the Patta x Asics Gel Saga release date.  via HS

Patta x KangaROOS PxK Hiking Collection

Dutch sneaker suppliers Patta have been silent when it’s come to collaborations in the wake of their world-beating Parra-designed Nike Air Max 1 provided an instant 500% ROI to those lucky enough to snag a pair last March.  Coming in at #1 on a variety of the year’s best-of lists puts Patta in the cushy position of being able to call their next shot, so while you might not have seen the particular brand coming, it’s not terribly shocking to see them spread the heat to one of the underdog brands.  The choice to move forward on the Patta x KangaROOS PxK Hiking Collection is a curious one, but you can’t really argue with the results.  The KangaROOS K2 shows the store’s typical eye for clever color combos with its ‘grape’-flavored accents adding a nice pop to an otherwise earthy design, while two pairs of Woodhollows stay closer to the tonal trend that’s so popular these days.  You can see more photos after the jump including the Victorinox Swiss Army Pocket Knife that comes with the Woodhollows, and look for these at Patta starting November 5th with additional select retailers to join the party one week later.

Patta x Asics Gel Saga II

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
