Backing 1872, baseball was introduced in Japan which is inspiration for the size? x Asics Gel Lyte OG ‘Japanese Baseball’ collaboration.
Paying homage to the passion shared by the Japanese for Baseball, size? goes into Asics Tiger’s vault to release the Asics Gel Lyte OG.
Featuring multitude of materials that directly reference the sport; a Light Grey satin serves as both the sidewall underlay and toe box, the same kind use to create the Jerseys worn out on the field. Tonal cross stitching surrounding the heel counter and sidewall give a nod to the kind found on the baseball itself, and the contrasting leather stripes on either side of the upper are close representations to that of a pitchers glove.
