As a nice surprise to close out 2011, sneaker collaboration legends Patta join forces with running footwear kings asics to breathe new life into the brand’s Gel Saga model with another limited release, continuing their collaborative series.
The understated Gel Saga uses Amsterdam’s native black/white/red colour scheme, with hints of the sneaker store’s own signature green on the inside top eyelet, outsole and Gel Saga branding. Each heel and insole is branded with either Patta or asics, and the white laces shown are joined by two additional pairs, one of which printed with the city’s three St Andrew’s Crosses, which also appear embroidered on each side of the tongue.
Most importantly for this time of year the two names have put a focus on tough and durable materials throughout the upper, ready to withstand weather conditions in Europe this time of year – though you’d be forgiven for keeping them boxed up until the Summer months.
With 100 pairs released already through the Patta store, a further 300 pairs are expected to release throughout Europe tomorrow, December 30th. Grab yourself a pair from Sneakersnstuff (Stockholm), and from Footpatrol and Hanon in the UK.
