Mita, a Japanese retailer, is no stranger to collaborations- especially with Asics. Less than a year removed from this same pairing’s 2008 campaign for the Gel Lyte III, September 5, 2009 marks the release date of this familiar duo’s latest collaborative work. The Gel-Lyte Speed is set to drop in a colorway inspired by the relaxing feel we all seem to associate with “Tropical” areas. Hitting stores just as summer should be wrapping up, these kicks consist of a predominantly grey base with bright red, pink, blue and yellow accents. Limited to a reported 500 pairs, getting your hands on a pair of these might be as elusive as that tropical vacation I’m sure we could all use. So be sure to keep up with this release by checking-in with mita, and always count on us to help. Are these fresh enough to round out your summer of sneaker purchases?
