Christmas is still a couple months away, but this year's crop of sneakers celebrating the holiday are already showing up via preview images.
Asics looks to jump ahead of the crowd as it preps its "Christmas 2015" pack for release. The classic Gel-Lyte III along with the Gel-Lyte V make up this collection. The GL III is known as the "Bad Santa" edition and comes in a red and brown colorway. It features a red/brown nubuck upper with reflective 3M stripes on the sides and a speckled midsole. The GL V might look familiar to some, as it kinda looks like a twist on the Ronnie Fieg x Diamond Supply Co. pair released back in June. Known as the "Jack Frost" edition, this pair sports an aqua and grey nubuck upper with a speckled midsole.
A sneaker release date for the Asics "Christmas 2015" Pack has yet to be announced. It is slated to hit overseas retailers first in late November, so a U.S. drop should follow shortly after.
