It’s hard out here for collab to get noticed these days. What was once a fun novelty has become seemingly the bread and butter of every boutique out there. While they might not stock as many pairs, they know that when the right collab hits, it can many the difference between a repeat customer and an extra sale or ten. Case in point, Concepts and Asics have teamed up to produce an amazing remake of the Gel Lyte III. Once they become available on the 2nd, these kicks might as well be sold out based on how fast we think it will sell.
