st alfred x asics gel lyte 3

second sneaker post of the past exciting few days is these my beyond beautiful st alfred x asics gel lyte 3 from the june release this year. these are probably one of the best and most amazing present surprises i've ever been treat too and they are even more amazing in real life from the promo shots.

saint alfred is a chicago based store and they have some together with asics for this super special release. i think aside from recent kith releases which are notoriously impossible to get hold of, these are one of the best colour ways i have seen recently in the gel lyte 3.

 the first collection of promo shots of the sneaks where slightly deceiving to the eye on the colour, in some shots the suede seemed a more soft grey and others a baby blue but i think my pictures above give a perfect snap of the shoes colours in reality - a really almost icey steel blue with a touch of sea green, with the most beautiful rich sandy upper sole with a smidge of gum sole on the heel base (which i love!) the darker shade of the steel coloured blue on the heel wrap coordinates perfectly, really giving these shoes the feel of looking out onto a perfect white sandy beach.

the suede is unreal, so soft and luxurious really giving you the feeling a lot went into the make up of this shoe in terms of quality and design aesthetic. also included are 3 sets of laces, the blue which come already in the shoe and also a white and sandy coloured pair. i'm already debating swapping for white but for now the blue has me won over, the colour selection and how this compliments each part bringing your eye to every detail is really special - though i feel introducing a different lace colour will only help to enhance more sections with each change.

needles to say i adore them so much, i was totally gobsmacked when i was handed the box as for me with size 4 feet, any super rare release i am able to get in my size is like gold to me! and i always look forward to adding to my few special asics releases to the pairs i already own.

-  i've included some snaps below of my favourite parts of the shoes make up! 
hope you enjoy them as much as i do!
