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.
