Continuing the 25th anniversary celebration of the GEL-LYTE III, ASICS Tiger and Footpatrol have collaborated on a new project, inspired by the London store’s logo.
A gas mask – a symbol of a time of conflict and struggle for many Britons during World War II is also a reminder of when people came together when they needed to the most. Footpatrol, inspired by the camaraderie of these times and what this symbol continues to convey, a squad, has created a shoe to embody these ideals.
The Footpatrol GEL-LYTE III’s silhouette features a rich olive branch colourway with gold and black accents. The sneaker uses perforated pigskin in its uppers and black suede on the interior medial upper. The exterior medial upper has reflective gold backing behind olive coloured suede and features the Footpatrol written out in gold emboss on the heel counter.
The sneaker has a hairy suede tongue and a soft sand coloured leather lining. The heel tab has a canvas backing detail and the heel counter is embossed with a gold Footpatrol logo.
The logo can also be found on the sockliner, while “Footpatrol GEL-LYTE III” is spelled out in Morse code in the laces to round out the theme.
