Commonwealth x ASICS GEL-Lyte V “Kultura”

Commonwealth x ASICS GEL-Lyte V “Kultura”
The beauty and individuality of the ASICS x Commonwealth Gel-Lyte V Beige is the result of an fascinating homage. The collaborative duo look to the Philippines as their inspiration behind this upcoming rework. It's not just the vibrant country which influences the design but one of the most mysterious Filipino ethnic groups.



The mountainous people known as the Kalinga have maintained the same way of life for hundreds of years. Avoiding contact with the rest of civilisation, they’ve managed to retain their cultures and customs which have been passed down through the generations.



US retailer Commonwealth utilises this achievement by immortalising some of the Kalinga’s unique body paint on the Gel Lyte V. It remains subtle at the tongue and lace surround while a beige crafted upper is showcased elsewhere. This model is otherwise known as the ‘Kultura’. Those geometric shapes and stripes are complimented with an ultra premium use of materials. Namely nubuck leather, mesh for comfort and suede overlays.



The Commonwealth x ASICS GEL-Lyte V “Kultura” will drop online on Friday the 14th of April 2017 for the retail price of R2399.00

Please note: This release will be available in our JHB store from Saturday the 15th of April 2017.



PLEASE NOTE: Our Cape Town store will be closed from the  14th – 18th of April due to renovations.
