Of course there were some momentary doubts when Bernie Gross and Jason Faustino of EXTRA BUTTER took on the task of producing five collaborative designs with ASICS. But both men knew that the project was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and would be a magnificent showcase what they can do. Fast forward to some months later, the EXTRA BUTTER crew finally launched the last of its “Death List 5” collaboration series with ASICS, the ASICS Gel Lyte V “Snake Charmer”. Over sushi, ice cold vodka, and music by DJ Tezo, the store welcomed several guests for a preview event at EXTRA BUTTER LES on January 30th. Along with the hosts themselves and B-Boy crews Crazy 88 and Breaks Kru, visitors had the chance to take peek at the Death List 5 Room, a special exhibit with all five ASICS and matching accessories on display.
However, just in case you missed both the preview party and the launch event over the weekend, EXTRA BUTTER will be releasing EXTRA BUTTER x ASICS Gel Lyte V “Snake Charmer” tonight, February 10, through its shop.extrabutterny.com online store. Stay tuned till 8 pm EST when the edition becomes available.
Release Date: February 10, 2014 (Tonight!) | 8 pm EST – Online Only
