COMMENTS

If you ever find yourself standing in front of the sneaker closet trying to decide which pair would be most appropriate for a visit to your local art gallery (it happens), Asics is about to provide you with the ideal solution.

Fashion house Vivienne Westwood has once again collaborated with Asics Tiger, and the result was inspired by a 1743 oil painting by French artist François Boucher.

The special Hyper Gel Lyte received an incredible AOP treatment, its entire ripstop textile with leather overlays upper covered by the Daphnis and Chloe motif. The subject was not new one for Westwood as it revisits the paintings use as part of a 1990 collection.

The special edition sneaker is identified on each heel counter with the Westwood brandmark, a stylised regal orb that provides the Gel Lyte with an interesting rear view.

It’s not our practice to add fuel to the fire when it comes to hyped models, but we should mention that this sneaker is being sold via a draw on August 16, 2019. We suggest visiting END. to register if these exciting Asics are a must-have for you.
