ASICS 25th GEL LYTE III x NEED MORE
Gel-Lyte III „25th Anniversary“
2015 was definitely a damn strong and legendary year for asics tiger. the japan based brand dropped heat like no other. one of their main highlights was mos def the launch of the 12 gel lyte III „25th anniversary“ collabs: 12 of the finest sneaker.stores worldwide were able to create their personal homage to the gel lyte III. all of the 12 models are already all.time classics and caused a lot of covetousness within the sneaker-community.
since day one, we are big fans of the gel lyte III modell designed by the legendary shigeyuki mitsui in 1990. from this point of view, we were sad that it took us so long to finish our illustration of the „25th anniversary“ series. but 2015 was a big year for us, too – packed with a lot of great projects and work to do, but nevermind the best comes for last.
we are pretty proud to announce that we teamed up with asics tiger germany to create this official illustration series to show our love to this outstanding 2015 collab year.
our „25th anniversary“ serie consist of one collection poster with all 12 motifs, hand.illustrated and limited to 250 copies and the 12 single hand.illustrated artworks of the collab sneakers on hahnemühle fine art paper. the single artworks are limited to 25 and all of them of course signed and numbered by the artist ami, who illustrated all motifs by hand in his unique and well-known style.
besides the limited art prints and poster, we also produced our first vinyl sticker sheet with all the 12 sneakers as a sneaker circle. you can remove them all individual and stick them on your favorite places.
