The connection between sneakers and the art world is a well-documented one (think Dave White), as sneakers are an exceptional medium for artistic expression. Spanish based LimitEDition has taken it a step further, celebrating their 10th anniversary with an ASICS' collaboration based on the Salvador Dali painting The Persistance of Memorythat they've titled, "SurrEDaliste". Working with the ASICS Gel Lyte V as their canvas, they’ve started with a brown leather upper and incorporated multiple aspects of the famous surrealist artwork, including insects on the inner neoprene, orange stitching on the heel that is a nod to the Catalonian cliffs, and a blue gradient on the midsole that mirrors the sky. Check out detailed images of these below and look for these to arrive in store at LimitEDitions on Saturday, December 13th followed by a more extensive release a week later on December 20th.
