ASICS Sportstyle joins Singapore’s OG sneaker artist, Mark Ong, a.k.a SBTG and Limited Edt, the footwear retailer at the forefront of Singapore’s sneaker culture, Limited Edt, to roll out the second iteration of the MONSOON PATROL collection that debuted to much fanfare in 2018. Inspired by themes of discovery, exploration and taking on a sense of adventure, The MONSOON PATROL II once again revisits ASICS' GEL-Lyte III, capping off the brand’s year-long celebration of the iconic silhouette’s 30th anniversary with modern and exciting updates in two colourways.
The first colourway, LICHEN GREEN / PIEDMONT GREY, is an update to the 2018 OLIVE version, taking a monochromatic approach with various shades of Grey in ribbed nylon and hairy suede filling the panels.
The shoe features updates like a "spell out" logo on the shroud and an alternative "Rebel Lace System”, with elastic lace and toggle fasteners for optimised convenience and functionality for the wearer. SBTG's signature Parsillia camouflage also lays under the ASICS logo and on the insole.
Inspired by the monsoon season of his home city of Singapore, the MONSOON PATROL collection is the essential weatherproof urban shoe that’s made to conquer any condition and reflect the wearer’s inherent sense of adventure.
The distinctive design showcases SBTG’s artistic interpretation of ASICS Sportstyle’s iconic GEL-LYTE III silhouette, featuring his signature military motifs through a custom camo print. The model comes equipped with GEL technology and the classic split tongue design that the GEL-LYTE model has become known and loved for over the past 30 years.
