UPDATE: Missed out on the elusive raffle? Fear not, the good crew at Sneaker Politics will be releasing a limited size run of the hot-to-trot 'Nippon Blue' this coming May 17.
Releasing under their joint BASICS Program banner, BAIT and ASICS deliver their third and final Gel Lyte III instalment. The collaborative calibration brings uncommon elements together to create new releases for everyday living, and executes the motif this time around by sourcing traditional textiles all the way from Godzilla country. The Nippon Blues release comes shrouded in Japanese imported snowflake printed material with an overlay of durable navy nailhead suede paneling, while a white midsole and red waxed rope lacing, lining and branding complete the Americana colour equation. Now that the Gel Lyte III trifecta is complete, we're keen to see what comes next from the BASICS boys. Click here to find out how to cop.
