In 2015, for the 25th anniversary of the GEL-Lyte III, Titolo released a ‘Papercut’ make-up of the classic ASICS sihouettte inspired by the ‘scherenschnitte’ pattern on the ceiling of their Zurich store. One year later, the Titolo crew have once again partnered with ASICS to bring this inverted ‘Albino Papercut’ GEL Lyte III into the world, in celebration of the Swiss retailer's 20th anniversary. The shoes are an alternate take on the OG 'Papercut' GEL-Lyte III, with the black and white colouring of the 2015 design transposed. Limited edition may have lost any meaning a long, long time ago but this is the real deal – with only two pairs in existence!
Titolo are keeping one in their personal treasure chest, but the second pair – a size US 9 – is up for auction on eBay right now, packaged inside über extravagant 'friends & family' packaging. 100 percent of proceeds from the auction to be donated to the Pestalozzi Children's Foundation, which strives for every child around the world to have access to high-quality education So bid high and guilt free with the knowledge that the winning bid will be contributing to a good cause.
The auction is live on eBay right now and will run until 1:15pm GMT on August 9. Good luck!
