Christened the GEL-Tiger Snake, this venomous varmint is a nod to our native antipodean fauna and ASICS’ historical origins as the Onitsuka Tiger company.
Aggressive, deadly and badass to the bone, the tiger snake has a fearsome reputation as a predator. With its luxurious sandy belly and stripey black upper, the snake’s natural camouflage is perfect for hiding in plain sight.
Buttery beige cowhide is next-level opulence, while micro-perf toe panels and suede stripes add subtle sprinkles of texture. On the medial side, poppin’ pink reflective 3M adds a dazzling counterpoint to a blacked-out midsole laced with neuro-toxic splatter. Solid gold text across the nubuck heel is a touch of class among the mayhem. This GEL-Tiger Snake has serious fangs!
To mark the occasion, we’ve produced a heavily customised GEL-Tiger Snake box complete with psyched-out illustrations from Alexander Heir. Screen-printed by hand using fluoro ink infused with actual tiger snake venom, the packaging is just as deadly as the GEL-Tiger Snake.
The ONLY way to get the GEL-Tiger Snake with the crazy packaging in these pictures is from the Sneaker Freaker shop. Limited pairs will go on sale May 23 at 10pm Melbourne time, which is 8am in New York and 1pm in London.
