25th Anniversaries are a pretty big deal. As a person who has celebrated a quarter of a century on this here earth, I know how epic it is to reach that milestone so the fact that the ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III is a ripe old 25, says a heck of a lot about this shoe's staying power.
To celebrate, Asics links with Scotland-based brand Hanon for an autumn 'Solstice.' Drawing inspiration from Hanon's northerly location where dark winter evening are a stark contrast to long summer nights, the brands paid homage to the 'gloaming' skies with a luxe blue azure suede/purple nubuck combo on the upper.
In addition to the blazing two-toned colorway, Hanon added another touch of Scotland with the Celtic knot and flame pattern found on the lining. The pattern, an ancient symbol associated with the solstice, gives significant history to this GEL-LYTE's naming.
The Asics x Hanon Gel-Lyte III 'Solstice' will be available for purchase at Hanon's brick and mortar shop on November 28th. If by some chance you won't be traipsing about Scotland, you can find them online via shops like NakedCPH.
