The ASICS Gel Lyte V Sneakerness Passport just got restocked, so don’t miss your chance to cop this time around. Surprisingly, sizes returned at a major UK retailer despite the fact that this shoe never really ‘officially’ released. Limited to only a few hundred pairs, it remains on of the most sought-after ASICS collaborations.
As the name would suggest, this is a homage to one of the world’s biggest sneaker exhibitions, held annually in Zurich. Sneakerness welcomes visitors from around the globe, many of whom enjoy an unhealthy addiction to footwear.
To celebrate that diversity, ASICS opt for a theme inspired by a passport. The deep maroon coloured upper represents the outer booklet and looks especially premium in soft suede. Other striking details include the addition of perforations across the heel as well as soft mesh to the ankle surround. A contrasting white midsole gives a clean and refined look underfoot.
The work ‘Sneakerness’ is printed to the tongue and ASICS branding features at the rear. To finish the look, a gum coloured outsole sits underfoot.
As mentioned, you’ll have to be quick if you want to secure the ASICS Gel Lyte V Sneakerness Passport.
