The first release from the VILLA and Wale partnership tackles the legendary ASICS Gel Lyte III. Dubbed as “The Bottle Rocket”, the sneaker takes its inspiration from the celebration of July 4th in the city. All over the USA people celebrate Independence Day with friends and family, grilling food, eating ice cream, playing games, and lighting fireworks. As a secondary story, “The Bottle Rocket” celebrates the American Dream.
The Villa exclusive “Bottle Rocket” Gel Lyte III is constructed with a premium suede upper featuring contrasting blue and red color inside and outside panels, eyelets, and branding. The outsole contains a white base with an explosion of red and blue fireworks. Hints of 3M detailing can be found on the laces and the stars underneath the heel and panel netting, while the footbeds have a mismatched stars and stripes pattern. The sneakers come packaged in a two piece multi-branded VILLA x Wale x ASICS “Bottle Rocket” box with a collectors edition Pintrill pin set and an alternate set of red laces.
The Asics x Wale x Villa Gel Lyte III (Bottle Rocket) is available now at RUVilla.com and at a Villa location near you!
