Sneaker Freaker x Asics Gel Lyte III “Alvin Purple”


Asics has been coming on strong lately with the Gel Lyte III releases. We’re especially thankful for it too since the sneakers are some of the most comfortable runners ever made. Slipping your feet into a pair is as close as you can get to entering Heaven and walking on clouds, without actually dying to do so.

In the past couple of weeks we’ve taken a look at some new releases hitting retailers and some upcoming releases which are due out later this year. As always the most popular of the bunch are the collaborations. While Ronnie Fieg’s Super Red Gel Lyte III’s build up anticipation we’ve just caught our eye on another Gel Lyte III which is sure to be a hot item.

In collaboration with Asics, sneaker publication Sneaker Freakerworked up this Gel Lyte III dubbed “Alvin Purple”. The preview comes by way of Issue 18 of Sneaker Freaker which uses a cover image showing off the sneakers. Not only that, but the image is 3D too!! According to Sneaker Freaker the sneakers have no special materials which aren’t unusual to the sneaker world, or a cool back story behind them, they’re “just a straight-up party banger”.

Official release details aren’t available at this time, it’s only being announced that the sneakers will release sometime later this year, but if you hit up Sneaker Freaker now you can scoop up the latest issue with the 3D preview. The issue won’t be shipped out is subscribers and is an online exclusive so get on it now if you want one. Along with you’re purchase you’ll get a 3D posted and a pair of 3D glasses.
