Monkey Time X ASICS Gel-Sight (Olive Crown)

Date: May 28 2016

The crew at Japanese fashion imprint monkey time have collaborated with their compatriots over at ASICS once again, this time adding their refined style to the GEL-Sight silhouette. With Rio 2016 looming, there has been no shortage of Olympic-inspired retro reissues from years gone by. For something different however, this collaboration between fellow countrymen draws inspiration from the world's premier sporting event in a fresh way, but in a way that is deeply rooted in Japan's sporting history.

The GEL-Sight made its debut on the feet of the Japanese national team at the '92 Barcelona Olympics with a neck-breaking combination of blood red and metallic gold, making it the perfect vehicle for this collaborative release. As the name implies, this 'Olive Crown' make-up draws its palette from the olive wreath crown – procured from the wild olive trees that grew at Olympia – that would be bestowed upon the champions in the ancient Olympic Games, which is represented through a combination of olive-coloured suede and pig skin nubuck.

The monkey time x ASICS GEL-Sight 'Olive Crown' will be available June 4th, exclusively through monkey time stores in Japan and selected global ASICS Tiger stores. A worldwide release will follow on June 18th through selected ASICS stockists worldwide.
