Ronnie Fieg isn’t the only one out there creating magnifique collabos with Asics. The SoCal retailer BAIT is set to release the first shoe in the ‘BASICS’ pack, the Asics Gel-Lyte III ‘Model-001 Vanquish.’
A woodland camouflage canvas material takes center stage, with black suede panels and hints of red. The most eye-catching feature has got to be the use of metallic mesh in some of the panels of the shoe. Maybe it’s a reach, but it could resemble the front grill of an Aston Martin Vanquish. Add gold lettering and speckling to the midsole along with some waxed laces and it’s pretty clear that the folks at BAIT cheffed up some marvelous shit.
Due in part to the weird looking clamshell tongue, the Gel Lyte III has been getting quite a bit of shine in the sneaker enthusiast community and the newest release by BAIT will undoubtedly increase its popularity. Better get in on the online reservation while you can.
