ASICSTIGER™ has teams up with SBTG and Limited Edt for the release of their latest collaboration on the GEL-LYTE™ lll silhouette, Monsoon Patrol. The sneaker has been inspired by the monsoon season in Singapore, from which both companies herald. The Monsoon Patrol silhouette is an essential weatherproof urban shoe that is made to conquer any inclement condition.
Sneaker artist Mark Ong, otherwise known as SBTG, joined with well-respected footwear retailer, Limited Edt, for a one-of-a-kind design. The GEL-LYTE lll has been amped up with design influences by SBTG’s definitive artistic touches, which includes iconic GEL-LYTE™ characteristics, including the GEL™ technology. The Monsoon Patrol received updated treatments, which includes a triple-density sole and a new take on the classic split-tongue design to give it a more contoured fit and better stability. Some of the more distinct changes on the silhouette is the nylon toe box and removable nylon tongue cover with a gutter hook system. These changes give the silhouette a resistance to water. SBTG completes the design with his signature colours of army green and camo prints, making wearers well-equipped soldiers.
The Limited Edt x SBTG x ASICSTIGER GEL-Lyte III ‘Monsoon Patrol’ is set to drop on Saturday, 26 January 2019, which will be exclusively available at Shelflife Cape Town and Johannesburg. A live raffle will take place at 9:30am, with the remaining pairs of sneakers being made available online from 11am. The sneaker will retail for R2,499.
