Derek Curry, the founder of Sneaker Politics, served the United States in a different capacity; he served in the military. The new Sneaker Politics x ASICS GEL-Lyte III is a tribute to Curry’s time in the military, and the result is one of the most authentic collaborations in recent memory.
Derek uses the release’s colors, materials, and embellishments to draw comparisons to military uniforms. As soon as you put on this pair of shoes, you’ll immediately feel like you’re wearing military fatigues. Across the toe, a small tear mimics wear, while also paying tribute to the United States of America. Curry’s years of service are commemorated in medial toe detail, and his founded brandmark rests on the heel. Finally, a multicolor sole unit in the hues of sail, green, black, and gold completes the look of the pair.
ASICS, Sneaker Politics, and a few select retailers will be selling the Sneaker Politics x ASICS GEL-Lyte III military-inspired sneakers on May 30th.
