Asics continues its long-lived tradition of collaborating with European sneaker shops – Italy’s Slam Jam in this case – by creating this beautfully color-blocked pair of the Asics Gel Lyte III. We first showed this collaboration in early July but this second look reveals the truer colors of the shoe; at first, these appeared to be brown, but proper daylight has revealed the light-grey and white upper with the sick white-red gradient on the midsole. Slam Jam’s collaborations with big-name sneaker labels in the past – the Nike Air Force 1 for example – have been huge hits, and this upcoming Gel Lyte III with accompanying matching socks should be a huge hit in Europe as well. Check out the detailed shots after the jump and let us know what you think of the colorway. via S&M.
