Sneaks on the AVE: atmos x Asics Gel Lyte III






Ronnie Fieg's latest GL3 designs are building quite a bit of buzz amongst the cult following he has directly helped to expand, but there's another Asics collaboration on the way before either the 'Leatherbacks' or 'Salmon Toes'.  We're speaking, of course, about the atmos x Asics Gel Lyte III, a model first previewed on Sneaker News and on BlvdAve just under a month ago, and one that's sure to have US sneakerheads dialing up their overseas connects.  This black and gold design features the same classic suede and mesh construction that made Fieg's collabos such a hit with old school running fans, but the colorway offers a glimpse into the higher contrast possibilities.  Your best bet to get these outside of Japan is likely the 'bay, so click through to see more angles and let us know if you'll try to procure a pair.

Sneaks on the Ave: Asics GT-II – Navy Blue – Lime Green






Overshadowed in the last two decades by its Gel Lyte III successor, the Asics GT-II has returned to prominence in recent months on the strength of a few standout collaborative designs.  Proof that the Onitsuka Tiger still has what it takes to pump out quality colorways is pictured above, a classically simple two-toned upper riding a white sole

.  From a distance, these appear to be your standard Michigan-leaning navy and gold release, but a closer look reveals the accents to actually be a lime green shade, leading this pair to a surprisingly fresh result that's still quite versatile.  Check through the pics and pick up a pair from Size?, who currently have a sweet deal on flat-rate international shipping.
