Release INFO: Asics x Sneaker Freaker Gel Lyte lll “Alvin Purple”

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!

  1. Hell Yes! Like all SF collabs, they have been standing by for some time now. Wish i didnt have financial problems these days, making it hard to be a sneakerhead! It’s an amazing take on the GL 3. Hopefully i will own them october 1’st. The dark shade of grey looks crisp 🙂

  2. Man, so much good stuff coming out relatively close to one another.. Matti, you hit right on the nose, it is tough being a sneakerhead now a days.. lol..
