Limiteditions X ASICS Gel Lyte V (Surredaliste)
UPDATE: This is about as close as most of us will ever get to owning a Dali, so if you still haven't copped yourself a pair KITH still have availability. Get on it!
Salvador Dali was inspired by the Catalonian landscape for his 1931 masterpiece The Persistence of Memory, so for Spainish retailer LimitEDition's 10th anniversary celebratory colab with ASICS, they turned to the famous piece of surrealist modern art for some inspiration of their own. The beautiful colours of the Catalonian sky is reflected in the midsole's gradient blue and speckled white, while the vibrant orange neoprene and panels pays homage to the Cadaques stone featured in the oil painting. The artwork's insects are also featured covering the neoprene tongue of the sneaker, completing this quirky nod to the equally quirky muse for this release. The LimitEDitions x ASICS Gel Lyte V 'SurrEDaliste' will be releasing in-store as a friends and family drop on the 13th of December, before receiving a wider release on the 20th of December.
