After flying all the way to Paris for the A.P.C. and Florence Tétier collections, Asics have now returned home to Japan for the RED SPIDER x atmos x Asics GEL-Lyte III "Red" collaboration. Designed by the Osaka-based reggae soundman RED SPIDER, who is also famous for being a massive sneakerhead, this rare three-way partnership is the ultimate way to end 2022, so keep it locked here to find out everything that you need to know, including confirmed release information and so much more.
Taking on the Japanese sportswear brand's flagship silhouette, RED SPIDER's version features a premium leather and suede construction that's as luxurious as it gets. Mismatched bandana detailing adorns the lacing system and insole, while the GEL-Lyte III's signature split tongue design makes a comeback here. Asics' iconic Tiger Stripes head towards the lateral and medial sidewalls, while a spider graphic is finely embroidered along the toebox to keep in line with the theme. All of this sits on top of a GEL midsole for comfort and cushioning that's truly unrivaled.
If you want the RED SPIDER x atmos x Asics GEL-Lyte III Red in your collection, then you need to listen up. Set to release on December 23rd, 2022, it'll be available in men's sizes at atmos, Asics, and select stockists worldwide, with a retail price yet TBA. Let us know where this ranks compared to 2022's other Asics collaborations, and make sure you follow Sole Retriever on Twitter and download ourMobile App if you haven't already!
