A sneaker collaboration with outdoor brand The North Face isn't entirely unheard of. After all, we saw one such project with Vans last fall. This joint venture featuring the ASICS GEL-Lyte III, on the other hand, is a custom one-off, based on a pair of simple black GEL-Lyte IIIs modified with a calfskin toebox and lamb leather accents. Meanwhile, material from a North Face Gore-Tex jacket is deconstructed and used to create the shoe's cage and heel guards. Rounding out the details is prominent North Face branding on the heel embroidery and woven red tag. The North Face x ASICS GEL-Lyte III "The Apex," conceptualized by OTS Shoeshop and made by Sole Panda, will go on display at Klekt.ion Vol. 2 in Cologne on February 28.
