In 2007, Patta teamed up with ASICS to create what became the second GEL-Lyte III colab ever officially released – itself only the third colab for the entire sportswear brand. Since then, the Netherlands-based retailer has continued their relationship with ASICS, dabbling in other silhouettes in the GEL spectrum, most recently the GEL-Respector. However, Patta have yet to give the GEL-Lyte III another crack. Today though, they have announced the next best thing with an exquisite store exclusive. Plush brown suede sits atop a 'Birch' nubuck base, while burgundy Tiger Stripes add the perfect hit of colour. Finished off with a white midsole, black outsole and 'Patta Exclusive' hangtag, this is an immaculate GEL-Lyte III – colab or not.
The ASICS GEL-Lyte III 'Patta Exclusive' will release on June 9, exclusively through Patta's brick and mortar stores in Amsterdam and London, as well as through their online store.
