ASICS Sportstyle joins forces once again with Singapore’s OG sneaker artist, Mark Ong aka SBTG and Limited Edt, the footwear retailer at the forefront of Singapore’s sneaker culture, to roll out the second iteration of the MONSOON PATROL collection that debuted in 2018.
Inspired by themes of discovery, exploration and taking on a sense of adventure, the MONSOON PATROL II once again revisits ASICS’ GEL-LYTETM III, capping off the brand’s year-long celebration of the iconic silhouette’s 30th anniversary with modern and exciting updates. The ASICS’ GEL-LYTETM III designed by Shigeyuki Mitsui and has a history of going against tradition and subverting stereotypes.
The LICHEN GREEN/PIEDMONT GREY colourway, which launches on the 7th of January, is an update to the 2018 Olive version, taking a monochromatic approach with various shades of Grey in ribbed nylon and hairy suede filling the panels.
The shoe features updates like a reflective ‘spell out’ logo on the shroud and an alternative ‘Rebel Lace System’ with elastic lace and toggle fasteners for optimised convenience and functionality for the wearer. SBTG’s signature parsillia camouflage also lays under the ASICS logo and on the insole.
Inspired by the monsoon season of his home city of Singapore, the MONSOON PATROL collection is the essential weatherproof urban shoe that’s made to conquer any condition and reflect the wearer’s inherent sense of adventure.
The distinctive design showcases SBTG’s artistic interpretation of ASICS Sportstyle’s iconic GEL-LYTETM III silhouette, featuring his signature military motifs through a custom camo print. The model comes equipped with GELTM technology and the classic split tongue design that the GEL-LYTETM model has become known and loved for over the past 30 years.
The GEL-LYTE™ III MONSOON PATROL II will be available online at limitededt.com and sbtgsurplus.com and at Limited Edt Vault at 313 Somerset and CHAMBER at Wisma Atria. Australian release will be tomorrow the 19th of January and will be available at Above the Clouds, Up There Store, Laced Brisbane and Sneakerboy.
