ASICS x Hasbro 'Storm Shadow' and 'Snake Eyes' GEL-Lyte IIIs for G.I. Joe CollectionRelease: 25 February 2019
Classic 80s Hasbro toy series G.I Joe is getting another killer sneaker collaboration, this time courtesy of ASICS. Coming through with colourways based on two of the series’ main characters — Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes — the new collection makes use of the timeless GEL-Lyte III silhouette.
Opting for contrasting takes, ASICS and Hasbro have dressed the ‘Snake Eyes’ colourway in a black leather upper with white, grey and red detailing, while the ‘Storm Shadow’ trades the black for white. Elevating the darker sneaker is a speckled midsole and a translucent outsole, while a unique camo pattern mimicking Storm Shadow’s uniform dresses the white colourway. Last but not least, red Cobra motifs are placed on heels, nodding to the series’ evil entity of the same name.
Dropping alongside matching New Era caps and a Hex utility bag, the ASICS x Hasbro GEL-Lyte IIIs from the G.I. Joe Collection are available now at ,Foot Locker.
