UPDATE: If you've been on the hunt for this duo of 'ostrich leather' GELs, then you can quit your stressing. This collection has begun showing up at global stockists, including Sapato. Curiously, this pack is said to be a special Valentine's Day-inspired release. How gold-dotted ostrich skin symbolises Valentine's Day is anyone's guess, but this pack is impressive enough even without a holiday tie-in.
Stay golden! ASICS give two of their most well-known sneakers, the GEL-Lyte III and GEL-Lyte V, a special ‘ostrich leather’ colourway. In a unique move, each of the characteristic raised bumps of the textured material is adorned with gold. The metallic accents almost give the effect of an organic polka-dot pattern with the spots scattered across the panels of each sneaker. The GEL-Lyte III sports an off-white colourway while the GEL-Lyte V is made up in black. Each sits atop a classic white and gum sole and is finished with luxe gold embroidered branding.
The ASICS Ostrich Leather Gold Pack is available now from select stockists, including atmos.
