Italian sneaker retailer Slam Jam has teamed up with ASICS for bright new take on the classic Gel-Lyte III.  Originally scheduled to release in December, the collaboration shoe is now set to release later this month on January 19th.

Via Slam Jam:

Slightly later than scheduled, the ASICS x Slam Jam ‘GEL Lyte III’ will be introduced January 19th 2013 exclusively at Slam Jam, followed by a global release on the 26th of January 2013.

This edition features custom yellow and lime perforated premium leather for the upper, a rip stop split-toe and an all grey midsole with translucent silver spray. Multicolored laces are mounted, and 3 extra pairs will be included in the box: green, yellow and grey, different options that allow you to give your personal touch to these Gel Lyte III’s. Last but not least, a pair of ‘made in Italy’ Slam Jam socks (lime-yellow /silver lurex) will be the exclusive cherry on top.
Socks are exclusively available at Slam Jam (Milano and Ferrara).

Shoes will be available at Slam Jam in a complete size range from US 5 to US 12H, both for women and men. Only one pair per customer.

Milano – Via P. Paoli 3/5 – at 5 PM (during a special release event)
Ferrara – Via Canonica 5/a – 10.30 AM
