Sean Wotherspoon's love for corduroy is well known, as evidenced by the material being heavily featured on his colorful Nike Air Max 97/1 hybrid in 2017 as well as on his Bespoke Air Max 1 he created at NikeLab in New York City last year. Today, Wotherspoon teased a brand new corduroy Asics Gel Lyte III, but the latest iteration isn't solely his collaboration but is also with Atmos.
Seen on Wotherspoon's Instagram account is a new version of the Gel Lyte III that's covered in multicolored corduroy panels with its recognizable split tongue design. This version appears to be altered to feature a removable red and yellow Asics branding. Thanks to an image posted by guccipaul_mrleaker, the upper layer on the heels have been removed to reveal Atmos branding on the left shoe.
As of now, neither Atmos or Asics have confirmed if this project will see a retail launch.
UPDATE (01/24): Sean Wotherspoon has delivered yet another teaser of his upcoming collaboration with Atmos on the Asics Gel-Lyte 3.
