The Asics Gel Lyte V has been dropped in mulitple colorways. The Gel Lyte V must be Asics’ top shoe of the summer by far. So what’s next for the Gel Lyte V? A collaboration of course. No better way to collab than to do so with Copenhagen-based female sneaker store Naked.
This silhouette will be the first ever women’s only Asics Tiger collaboration. Dubbed the “Hafnia“, the shoe will cover a range of diverse colors which represent the city of Copenhagen. The blend of mint, coral, and rain camo resembles the Copenhagen only experience of watching late night summer sunsets on the plated sunroofs scattered throughout the city. ‘Hafnia‘ is the latin word for Copenhagen. The sneaker is based on a black and mint premium nubuck complimented by coral a dark grey neoprene tongue. Roped laces, splatter on the iconic Asics logo, 3m heel, and a transparent outsole add some character for those who desire the fancy feet.
Sorry fellas this sneaker is specifically designed for the ladies. Unless you know how to convert shoe sizes from women’s to mens then by all means do you. For all the ladies that lace, this collaboration will drop Exclusively at Naked on August 5th. A worldwide release will be set on August 15th.
Quick shoutout to the #ladiesthatlace !
