END. x ASICS GEL-LYTE™ III “Pearl”
Traditionally given as a 30th wedding anniversary gift, the pearl symbolises something that takes time to grow – the perfect theme for this collaboration in the year that marks the 30th Anniversary of the iconic GEL-LYTE™ III sneaker and the 15th Anniversary of the retailer END. Clothing.
Cast in a cascade of colours to reflect the iridescent nature of pearls, this bold interpretation combines purple, lavender grey, pink and ivory hues. Constructed with plush suede uppers and tumbled leather, this instantly recognisable silhouette encapsulates the aesthetic properties of the rare object. Looking as if it were shucked from an oyster merely moments ago, the striking silhouette features Mother of Pearl sockliner, a clear outsole and co-branded detailing to the heel. This bold, conceptual sneaker is presented with three sets of laces to allow for subtle customisation.
Housed inside a bespoke shoebox detailed with pearl graphics and END. branding, the Pearl truly encapsulates the advanced nature of the GEL-LYTE™ III and its status as a long-standing silhouette within the world of sneakers.
