The 10 year anniversary of LimitEDitions happens to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Salvador Dalí’s death, so to honour one of their favourite artists they’ve decided to dedicate this shoe design to his memory. Taking inspiration from Dalí’s painting ‘La Persistencia de la Memoria‘ (The Persistence of Memory), one of his most iconic pieces of work, this Gel Lyte V pulls direct colour references from the Catalonian landscape that inspired Dalí’s work.
Premium nubuck, soft suede and textured velour all feature on the brown upper, while hits of blue (a reference to the sky and sea) and orange (a reference to the Cadaques’ classic stone) bring colour to the silhouette. Final details such as the embroidered fly and ants on the tongues of each shoe reference Dalí’s playful use of insects, while the goat leather sockliner pays homage to 2015 being the year of the goat.
The LimitEDitions x asics Gel Lyte V “SurrEDaliste” drops at selected asics Family and Friends stores in the UK on 13th December for £120.
