Extra Butter concludes their Death List 5 collection of classic ASICS models inspired by the film Kill Bill with the "Snake Charmer" Gel-Lyte V.

Via Extra Butter:

“Do you find me sadistic…?”

Alas…we reach the end of the list. As our Death List 5 Project comes to a close, we finish things off with the leader of the sinister serpents that came before…Snake Charmer.

The Gel Lyte V has taken the vintage-tech running world by storm, winning over new fans of this look, and pleasing the true-school purists that know how much of a gem the Gel Lyte V already is.

“Snake Charmer” takes the shoe to another level with an aesthetic suited for a gentlemen, as well as a samurai. Plush black suede sits underneath “cowboy” brown leather overlays that evoke the type of Spaghetti Western gem of jacket, you might find in a vintage store on the outskirts of a barren desert. This combination is set atop a tasty cream-colored midsole, and probably our favorite of all the materials we’ve used thus far – purple paisley printed nylon!

The Extra Butter x ASICS Gel-Lyte V "Snake Charmer" will release Friday, February 7th at their Rockville Centre location and on Saturday the 8th at their Lower East Side location.  Online release information is yet to be announced.  Visit Extra Butter for all information on the Snake Charmer.
