Slam Jam x ASICS Gel Lyte III ‘6THPRLLL’

ASICS-Slam-Jam-Blog-1

After its latest hookup with Japanese brand Suicoke, Slam Jam keeps up the pace unveiling a new, thrilling collaboration for Spring 2016. This time Slam Jam joins forces with ASICS on a new multidisciplinary project, the 6THPRLL, the sequel of the successful 5TH DIMENSION launched in 2010, through which Slam Jam created the story of an imaginary universe focused on active sports and dynamics. The sneaker is a darker version of this previous world, a world that doesn’t exist but is real and populated by tribes, where shades of black and grey represent their unknown existence.

The Gel Lyte III 6THPRLLL is a far more aggressive version of the 2010 silhouette: it boasts a mesh upper in different shades of grey with matching suede overlays in the fore-foot of the shoe, while the heel panel is rendered in a lively light blue tone, leather Onitsuka stripes, branded sockliners, split tongue highlighted by the lining’s fluo accent and gradient sole unit echoing the upper’s colorway. Look for ASICS latest collaboration to drop this Saturday, June 4th.
