Here is the official date of the highly anticipated, Asics x Sneaker Freaker Gel Lyte lll “Alvin Purple”. Just like it says above, go mark your calendars to October 1st, 2010. Not only do we get a date, but detailed images to boot. Check them all out after the break.
Head over to Sneaker Freaker for all the details on the idea behind shoe. Below is a snippet of what you will see in the preview.
We wanted deep heat, but we also wanted to have some fun and inject a little pep back into our step. Frankly, we’ve had our fill of low-fi, colour by numbers, blando sneakers for grown-ups! Instead of a high falutin’ concept, we decided to wind the clock back to what we know best. Lately we’ve been fiending for the era when neck-snappin’ and rocking it XXX fresh was the name of the game. Remember how good that felt?
Yup, our new Alvin Purple is just a straight-up party gangbanger, circa 2005!
Like a mixtape full of anthems, Alvin is 100% killer with no bum notes.
It’s a positive return to old-fashioned heat and we think the timing
has never been more righteous. Minimalism is overrated!
