Amsterdam’s Patta has officially shared images of its latest collaboration with ASICS — the first co-branded effort between the two since 2011′s GEL-Saga.
Channeling ASICS’ Japanese roots, the collaborative GEL-Respector — which first surfaced late last year — takes cues from the likes of anime, tropical fish and mythological creatures.
The upper is comprised of overlays in methyl blue premium suede, with flame orange striping and marine green accents contrasted against a grey perforated nubuck base. Details include 3M striping underlay, custom tongue pulls, and embossed logos on the heel, branded sockliners, and matching laces in flat and rope options.
The Patta x ASICS GEL-Respector will drop at Shelflife on the 12th of March 2016 –stay tuned for more details!
