SEAN WOTHERSPOON X ATMOS X ASICS GEL LYTE III
When we think of Sean Wotherspoon, we necessarily associate him with the Nike Air Max 97/1 released in 2018. This pair featured a material that the founder of the Round Two store is particularly fond of : corduroy. Since December 2019, the latter teases in a subtle way, a multicoloured Asics Gel Lyte III designed with this same material. The Japanese brand Atmos and its designer Koji joined the project by presenting us through this magical trio (Asics, SW and Atmos) a collaboration on a silhouette celebrating its 30th anniversary : The Gel Lyte III.
This pair consists of a corduroy upper in a palette of colours ranging from blue to black, green, turquoise, grey, purple and orange. The two shoes are mismatched, the different parts of the vamp do not have the same colors. We discover a velcro part on the side of the sneaker, allowing to fix and interchange the emblematic Asics strips. In addition to the repositionable Asics logos supplied in 5 colours : yellow, blue, green, black and red, the pair comes with an Atmos branding patch and a Sean Wotherspoon Peace’N’Love signature logo that can be attached to the side of these stripes. Branding details appear on the insole, the heel counter and the heel tab. To finalize the personalization of the shoe, two pairs of laces, white and light pink, are added to this pair. The whole is based on a white midsole with a yellow heel clip for the right foot and red for the left foot. To complete the colourful and mismatched design, the two-tone outsole features brown and purple for one shoe, and purple and black for the other.
The Sean Wotherspoon x Atmos x Asics Gel-Lyte III will be released on 27 June 2020 in Japan, on Atmos-tokyo.com for around 160€ for the pair in adult size. A children’s version will also be available. A global release should arrive very soon.
This collaboration will be completed by articles matching the aestheticism of the shoe : five t-shirts of different colors, a tote bag and a handbag.
