Make and model: ASICS Gel-Lyte III
Condition: New with box

Alvin Purple is a traditional belter and what’s more conventional than a mix of premium suede, matte felt and silky mesh? That’s not to say we didn’t agonize over the finer details. First off there’s the asymmetrical color blocking which veers from the racy purple outside of the shoe to the toned-down view from the medial side. The ASICS stripes are offset by a mysterious color best described as ‘blue’ – not quite purple or mauve for that matter – but it sure does look the nuts! You’ll also get two sets of fancy polka-dot laces, charcoal ‘ocker’ suede and an orthodox 3M pop on the heel, all riding on crispy white soles.
