ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Off-White Croc”

Perhaps a close second in terms of luxuriousness to the upcoming veg-tanned edition of the GEL-Lyte III — which is limited to just 300 pairs and will retail for $500 USD — is this off-white release from ASICS. Decked out in faux croc skin throughout, the tonal design is one of the cleanest GEL-Lyte IIIs to date, coupling an off-white leather upper with a matching rubber outsole, stark white GEL-cushioned midsole and matching lining.

Available now via atmos, the kicks will likely make their way to additional ASICS stockists in the coming weeks.

Vans announces Limited Edition Vault by Vans collection with Takashi Murakami

Having already teamed up with the likes of TWOTHIRDS, Sneakersnstuff and Taka Hayashi earlier in the year, Vans has announced a new forthcoming collaborative effort with Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami.

Known for his vibrant anime-inspired artworks that often incorporate motifs from Japanese traditional and popular culture, Murakami’s personal liking for wearing Vans’ classic Slip-On during work helped bring about this partnership, which will see a premium range of limited edition footwear, apparel and skate decks released in late June.

For more information on this collaboration, pick up the latest issue of the HYPEBEAST Magazine, in which certain details of this upcoming collection were revealed.
