A frontrunner for the perfect summer sneaker

It's hard to appreciate the perennial toasty temperature in Singapore, but one of summer's redeeming factor is its ability to transform one's mood. As the air gets balmier, the desire to let loose seaside increases, urging us to trade in our Louis Vuitton leather totes for Jane Birkin basket bags. But as far as the sneakerhead is concerned, it also means a whole new slew of summer-inspired kicks to cop.

Rivaling the rainbow hued Authentics issued by Vans are Asics Tiger's Gel-Lyte V, flush with pastel tones to match the season's effervescent spirit. It's perforated nubuck leather upper colour-blocked in complementary sorbet shades, a departure from its usual palette of neutrals and deep tones.

All three colourways below. 

Available at Limited Edt stores from July 2017.
