The North Face meets ASICS on this collaborative GEL-Lyte III custom. Using a pair of “Pure Pack” black GEL-Lyte IIIs as a blueprint, this distinctly vegetarian-unfriendly silhouette features a calfskin toe box, lamb leather eyes and top stripes, while a The North Face GORE-TEX jacket has been ripped apart and used to create the cages and heel guards.

Presented in a black, tan and white tricolor colorway, The North Face’s logo appears both on the heel guard and a red tag on the right shoe.

Unfortunately, it won’t be available for purchase as this is a one-off conceptualization dreamt up by OTS Shoeshop and made by Sole Panda, that will go on display at Klekt.ion Vol. 2 in Cologne on February 28.

For some TNF collabs you actually can buy (on the resell market, at least), check out the complete history of the brand’s Supreme collaborations.
