He first teased the Sean Wotherspoon x Atmos x Asics Gel Lyte III on social media in October 2019.
During a Youtube mini-series, Sean Wotherspoon unveiled the coveted sneakers, showcasing them in all their corduroy glory.
As a follow up to his immensely successful Airmax 1/97, Sean Wotherspoon has been teasing an upcoming Asics collab. He first released images of the Sean Wotherspoon x Asics sneaker on his Instagram stories in October 2019, hinting at a colorful corduroy sneaker with interchangeable logos. He definitely piqued our interest.
Then, during the Youtube mini-series “Mismatched”, Wotherspoon took out the eye-catching sneakers, showcasing the full sneaker for the first time since October last year. The Sean Wotherspoon x Atmos x Asics Gel Lyte III definitely replicates the retro vibes of the Air Max 1/97, but this time in a mismatched colorway and with much larger logo patches on the lateral sides and heel caps.
The threeway collab sneaker boasts a lot of interesting details. For one, the sneaker utilizes multiple layers of corduroy, each one misaligned from the next. This creates an interesting mix of textures on top of the mismatched colors. Speaking of mismatch colors, each side has its own unique color palette – on the left, you get a mix of orange, blue and neon green; and on the right, purple, dark green and brown.
To take the craziness to the next level, you can customize the sneaker with various Velcro patches, which include interchangeable heel tabs and Asics logos for the lateral sides of the sneakers. You can choose to make each side as colorful and different as you like.
