Concepts X ASICS Gel Lyte V (Mix & Match Pack)
Here at Sneaker Freaker HQ, we're in two minds when it comes to rocking mismatched kicks. While we can appreciate the culmination of achievement that goes in to the 'What The' releases Nike keeps squeezing out, we can't say we'd ever be able to muster the swagger to rock any of the hotchpotch kicks out on the street. In their latest collaboration with ASICS, Concepts have introduced a mix & match aesthetic to the Gel Lyte V in a way that's a little more restrained. There are four colourways in the 'Mix & Match' pack, each with the same blend of tonal brown and tan on the upper. The distinction between colours is instead left to the neoprene inner booties and laces, with each pair decorated in different vibrant hues. Each colourway will be sold separately as a matching pair, meaning you can dismiss the whole mismatch theme if it doesn't suit your style or go nuts and make whatever combo you like. Interestingly, this release also marks the first Concepts colab to be released in toddler sizing and ain't they just the cutest! Both adult and toddler pairs come equipped with branded insoles, custom woven flag labels and exclusive Concepts packaging. The 'Mix & Match' Gel Lyte V pack will go on sale November 7th at Concepts Cambridge and NYC locations. Pics via Sneakernews.
