UPDATE: Heads-up fam, these are dropping over at Saint Alfred real soon! Pairs will be available in-store on November 21st from 9am CST. It's first-come first-serve, so don't be stalling now. A slew of additional pairs will be released online over at stalfred.com at 12pm CST. Saint Alfred are only shipping out domestically this round, so for those of you outside the 50 states, you'll need to keep your finger off the trigger until the global release on December 5th.
A couple of year's back, Saint Alfred created a new Chi-Town sneaker icon with their Windy City Gel Lyte III. It immediately became one of the hottest retro runner colourways of the whole damn year and just nailed am effortless and everfresh aesthetic. Now they're back for round two, and they're having a go at the GLV. Once again, the beautiful city of Chicago is the inspiration for the design, with the colour palette taking cues from the Second City's famed architecture. Don't ask us which buildings in particular yet, details are still sketchy. We do know that the materials are staunch, though, with TecTuff on the heel, waterproof GORE-TEX lining and durable rip-stop all playing a part. Stay tuned for more info and pics and get ready for the drop this Saturday, November 21 at Saint Alfred and stalfred.com, followed by the global release on December 5.
