Specialty boutique Commonwealth has teamed up with Asics to remix the footwear brand’s iconic Gel Lyte V silhouette for the Fall/Winter 2014 season. This collaboration, is dubbed ‘Gemini’ – which is Latin for “twins – gives us a subtle mismatch in its pairing. The left and right shoe of the ‘Gemini’ look the same at first glance but upon closer review, you can see that there are mismatched sections of full-grain leather and nubuck suede.
It is said that the subtle design ‘encourages people to be creative and celebrate individuality.’Each pair comes with two sets of laces and an exclusive ‘Gemini’ bandana made in the USA. The sneakers will be available exclusively at Commonwealth shops in Virginia Beach and Washington, DC as well as online beginning September 27.
