Collaborative partners since 2016, ASICS and Barcelona’s own 24 Kilates are teaming up again for a special take on the classic Gel-Lyte III, entitled the “24 Kilates Express.” Nodding to the scenic railway that connects Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, where 24K has another store, and inspired by the interior of the train’s cabin, the shoe offers up both a profusion of premium materials and a striking colourway.
Soft green suede adorns the toebox and heel, while premium light and dark brown leather make up the majority of the midfoot. A special embroidered badge acknowledging both stores adorns half of the split tongue, and gold detailing arrives on the laces. A two-tone gold and white midsole then completes the commemorative look.
The 24 Kilates x ASICS Gel-Lyte III - '24 Kilates Express' releases exclusively to Shelflife JHB and CPT for the retail price of R1899 on the 6 October 2018 via live raffle at 09:30am. Remaining pairs will be available online at 11am.
