A Complete History of Patta Sneaker Collaborations

Patta x ASICS GEL Lyte Speed

Year: 2009

After the success of 2007's GEL Lyte III collaboration, we teamed up again with ASICS, who were in the process of retro'ing the Gel Lyte Speed-model. In the winter of 2007 we released a limited artist series of sweaters with reworked Patta logos by graphic artists Boris "Delta" Tellegen, Parra and Eric Elms. With the artist's consent we decided to bring back those graphics and colors to apply on the Gel Lyte Speed model to create a pack. The three pairs vary in material choice, color up and characteristics, but all share a white midsole and white toebox for continuity. The black "Delta" version features 3M reflective elements, making them stand out only in certain light conditions. The purple "Elms" is the all-rounder with warm and cool properties through its hues of purple and blue. The red "Parra" is playful with the signature Parra color combinations and patent leather details. Each pair also features corresponding artwork on the inner lining and footbeds. Similar to the Patta GEL Lyte III, every pair came in a matching backpack instead of a shoebox. 3 lightweight ASICS jackets were also thrown in the mix to complete the pack.
