Slam Jam together with ASICS joins forces on a new multidisciplinary project, the 6THPRLL, the sequel of the successful 5TH DIMENSION launched in 2010, through which Slam Jam created the story of an imaginary universe focused on active sports and dynamics. The sneaker is a darker version of this previous world, a world that doesn’t exist but is real and populated by tribes, where shades of black and grey represent their unknown existence.
Part of the project are a limited-edition iteration of the Gel Lyte III and in a 7’’ vinyl containing the namesake track ‘6THPRLL’ produced by Khalaband DJ Hendrix – which also served as the soundtrack fro the launch video.
As for the sneaker, the Gel Lyte III 6THPRLLL is a far more aggressive version of the 2010 silhouette: it boasts a mesh upper in different shades of grey with matching suede overlays in the fore-foot of the shoe, while the heel panel is rendered in a lively light blue tone, leather Onitsuka stripes, branded sockliners, split tongue highlighted by the lining’s fluo accent and gradient sole unit echoing the upper’s colorway.
The Asics Gel Lyte III x Slam Jam “6th PRLLL” is set to release on Saturday, 21 May 2016 and will be available exclusively at Shelflife Store.
