Inspired by Singapore’s National Flower, the Limited Edt x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “VANDA” is the second of three Limited Edt collaborations that mark Singapore’s Golden Jubilee.
With Singapore celebrating its 50th year of independence and ASICS Tiger commemorating the 25th anniversary of the GEL-LYTE III silhouette, it comes as no surprise that a collaboration to establish both entities’ milestones would come to fruition.
The floral Limited Edt x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “VANDA” sneaker takes inspiration from the Vanda Miss Joaquim (Singapore’s National Flower), essentially a hybrid of two orchids. The uppers come in a custom jacquard print with hues of lilac, purple, blue and pink, with contrasting black premium leather found on the toe box, heel and split tongue.
A speckled midsole completes the look, and two sets of waxed laces – in black and lilac colors – are thrown in for good measure.
Similar to the earlier collaboration produced by Limited Edt, the Singapore-exclusive version of the Limited Edt x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “VANDA” comes in a special box set that includes a commemorative tie and a bottle of water repellent to keep sneakers dry.
Available from October 23rd onwards at Limited Edt stores (313@Somerset, Queensway, JEM, Marina Bay Sands and online), the Limited Edt x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “VANDA” will retail for S$269. Limited Edt’s VIP members who reserve the sneakers will also receive an invite for a members’ only launch party on October 22nd.
