As the year comes close to an end, there’s very little time for new releases to drop.   ASICS however just keeps pumping them out one after the other.  With the success of the last Gel-Lyte V ‘Lights & Shadows’, the 1993 silhouette is yet again receiving some Monkey Time loving.

To represent the different textured/coloured sand layers collected over thousands of years, this collaboration has used various types of materials for each detail of the upper.

The silhouette utilises pigskin nubuck as the base material, a roughed-up suede heel counter, a Lycra-lined collar, cotton flat laces and a splatter-printed EVA (Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate) midsole.  As with many leather-based ASICS sneakers, the right amount of perforations are added to the Monkey Time ‘Sand Layer’ collaboration.

Pre-release will be available at Monkey Time Harajuku and Shinjuku in Japan, as well as Beauty & Youth Kanazawa and Osaka on November 21st.

General release on December 5th with retailers list still yet to be officially announced.
