As Chicago’s Saint Alfred gears up to release their very own interpretation of the Asics Gel Lyte III, we now have release information on what’s likely to serve as one of this year’s hottest collaborations.

What has already been received well by most sneaker enthusiasts so far, new detailed images provide a better look at the quality and color options as selected by Saint Alfred. To help better explain the shoe’s inspiration, check out what the brand had to say:

We teamed up with ASICS to bring you our rendition of the Gel Lyte III. The upper is made of premium suede, lined in leather all atop a gum sole. It also comes with 3 sets of laces. The colors were taken from Chicago’s lakefront and pays homage to one of our favorite places during a Chicago summer.

With that said, mark your calendar as the Saint Alfred x Asics Gel Lyte III releases on June 8, 2013 at a retail price of $150 in-store and online through Saint Alfred, followed by another release on June 15th in limited quantities at additional retailers.
