size? x ASICS TIGER GEL-Lyte OG ‘Japanese Baseball’
Ever since it was first introduced to Japan back in 1872, baseball has become the country’s favorite sporting pasttime. This is not only showcased by a large amount of talented Japanese players who made it into the MLB, but also by many local teams and a passion for the game itself passed down from generation to generation.
As a tribute to this long-lasting dedication to the sport, size? got together with equally tradition-steeped Japanese sportswear brand ASICS Tiger for a baseball-inspired GEL-Lyte OG. By using a selection of fine materials, the sneaker cleverly incorporates many elements of the game: light grey satin on the sidewall underlay and toebox resembles the cloth used on jerseys, contrasting leather stripes represent a pitcher’s glove and cross-stitching on the heels and sides even emulates the construction of a baseball itself.
