Announcing the Concepts x ASICS “Libertea” GEL-LYTE™ V
The inspiration behind the GEL-LYTE V and its 1993 release was based on montaging cutting room floor sketches from different designers into anew product. This year we celebrate the iconic running shoe's 30th Anniversary in collaboration with ASICS by showcasing a homage to classic American sport. The 2023 “Libertea” pays homage to a 2015 Concepts x ASICS GEL-LYTE III release by repurposing the original’s iconic colorway through the use of gold and silver metallic hits, athletic meshes and supple suedes.
“Our relationship with ASICS has allowed some of our most unique storylines and the length of our partnership has given us the time to anniversary product that we’re able to do so with utmost attention to material and execution,” says Deon Point, Concepts’ Creative Director.
The collaboration retails at $150 and will be available in men’s sizing 4-14. The Concepts x ASICS GEL-LYTE V “Libertea” releases 11am Saturday, July 8th exclusively at cncpts.com
