The WALE X VILLA X ASICS TIGER GEL LYTE III BOTTLE ROCKET sees the iconic runner receive a patriotic makeover just in time for the 4th of July.

There have already been some great collaborations from shops around the world for the 25th anniversary of the GEL LYTE III, but VILLA have decided to do something a little different by enrolling the help of WALE for their project. The hip-hop star is arguably as famous for his trainers as he is for his verses, so is undoubtedly a good choice to collaborate with. Using the 4th of July as its inspiration, the result sports patriotic pops of red, white and blue against a black backdrop. To give the shoe a more unusual look, the lateral side formstripes are finished in blue suede, whilst red is utilised on the medial side. White stars cover the side base layer and iconic split tongue, with a black mesh laid over the top continuing a look that is different from the norm. Rounding off the details are 3M touches on toe wrap, perforated toe box and tri-colour GEL LYTE III branding on the heel. A white midsole adds some stark contrast to the predominantly dark upper, with red and blue speckling and a matching outsole tying the colourway together. The patriotic details continue on to the insoles, with stars on the left foot and stripes on the right.

The WALE X VILLA X ASICS TIGER GEL LYTE III BOTTLE ROCKET is scheduled to drop at VILLA on MONDAY 29 JUNE. Make sure to keep checking back with us for updates on a wider release.
