Longtime collaboration partners ASICSTIGER and Patta have teamed up again to deliver a new take on the 1987 ASICSTIGER classic, the GEL-LYTE.
The original GEL-LYTE runner model set the mark for GEL-LYTE series 30 years ago, featuring many innovations at the time benefitting athletes, including lightweight synthetic fabrics, reflective materials and GEL technology. The GEL-LYTE also functioned as a visual blueprint for the series, with unique ways of colour blocking.
Patta's take on the sleek ASICSTIGER classic employs a mid grey base paired with dark purple nubuck overlays, accented with ginger honey striping and subtle pink hits on the details, including the striping underlay, lace stays and Patta-branded lace locks. The shoes feature a perforated toebox, soft leather lining, with subtle co- branding to be found on the woven tongue label, embroidered on the heel tab, printed on the insole, and on the aglets. Every pair comes with a custom ASICSTIGER x Patta hangtag and additional sets of pink and ginger honey laces.
The ASICSTIGER x Patta GEL-LYTE is scheduled for release at the Patta Amsterdam and London stores on Saturday, July 29 and will also be available online at patta.nl from Monday, July 31 onwards.
