Using the famous “La persistencia de la memoria” (The persistence of memory) painting by Salvador Dali as inspiration, Barcelona’s LimitEDitions team with ASICS to present their iteration of the popular Gel Lyte V silhouette.
Entitled ‘SurrEDalist’, the collaboration celebrates the stores 10th yeah anniversary, which just so happens to fall on the 25th anniversary of fellow Catalan Dali’s death. The Gel Lyte V provides the canvas, as the colours from the original paintings iconic skyline are transferred to the shoes exterior, with added touches in the embroidered fly detailing giving a nod to Dali’s use of insects throughout his work.
The shoes brown upper arrives in a mix of soft suede leather, premium nubuck and textured velour panelling, sitting on top of a speckled bright white midsole. Hints of blue feature on the sole and in the branding, while pops of orange are found on the heel and sock liner that is constructed from a goat leather paying homage to 2015 – the year of the goat.
It’s another great collaboration from the Barcelona based store who have put a lot of time into the construction, from the use of considered materials to the tasteful references of the original painting.
The LimitEdition x ASICS ‘SurrEDalist’ Gel Lyte V will be dropping on the 13th of December at the LimitEDitions store and will be available in the UK from the 20th of December at selected retailers.
