With Christmas just around the corner, Japanese footwear specialists Asics get nice and festive with their special edition Christmas Pack.
Keeping in with last years Holiday release, Asics are making it a bit of a tradition as they apply similar colour treatments to two Gel Saga silhouettes and the ever popular Gel Lyte III shape.
The first Gel Saga takes cues from Santa himself with a predominantly red upper broken up with a beige toe box and black branding on the stripes to represent St.Nick’s belt. The second Saga features a rich green on the upper, with tonal laces and a charcoal grey colour block at the front of the shoe, while the red branding completes the Christmas Tree feel.
Rounding off the pack is the snowman-inspired Gel Lyte III, with frosty greys gracing the upper and contrasting ‘carrot’ colour laces and a snow flake splattered sock liner. Each shoe is constructed from a synthetic nubuck and PU leather, featuring an icy white sole that is packed with Asics comfort enhancing Gel Technology.
We’ve been eagerly anticipating Asics festive efforts this year and they definitely haven’t disappointed. Having sensibly avoided the garish Christmas jumper look, the pack features a trio of highly wearable, festive kicks. The use of colour and the application of the popular toe box colour block has been executed to great effect, and if anything enhanced the already popular silhouettes.
The Asics Christmas Pack will be available from the 22nd of November at the following store;
