Sneaker Freaker has blessed Packer Shoes with an exclusive 'Second Cuming' (as they put it) of one of their most infamous Asics collaborations.

Known as the 'Alvin Purple' edition, this Asics Gel-Lyte III was originally released exclusively overseas in 2010 and never made it to US soil. Now, Sneaker Freaker has brought back this classic and has given it to Teaneck, New Jersey's, Packer Shoes. Featuring a black, purple and grey upper made up of nylon and suede with a 3M reflective back heel tab and a paint splatter design on part of the midsole.

The 'Alvin Purple' Asics Gel-Lyte III will be available exclusively at Packer Shoes both in-store and online at packershoes.com on Thursday, July 3. Retail is set at $150.
