ASICSTIGER™ brand teams up with Singapore’s OG sneaker artist, Mark Ong, a.k.a SBTG and well-respected footwear retailer and huge proponent of Singapore’s sneaker culture, Limited Edt, to roll-out the highly-anticipated GEL-LYTE™ lll shoes– Monsoon Patrol. Inspired by the monsoon season of his home-city Singapore, the Monsoon Patrol is the essential weatherproof urban shoes that are made to conquer any inclement condition.
The one-of-a-kind design features the iconic GEL-LYTE™ silhouette, the GEL-LYTE lll, that was rightfully amped up by SBTG’s definitive artistic touches. Apart from the regular GEL-LYTE lll characteristics such as the GEL™ technology, the Monsoon Patrol sneaker received updated treatments such as a triple-density sole and a new take on the classic split-tongue design, giving a more contoured fit and better overall stability.
Like a well-equipped soldier, the Monsoon Patrol also comes with a couple of new additions to prepare itself for the unexpected – nylon toe box, and a removable nylon tongue cover with a gutter hook system, giving the shoe an added resistance to water. SBTG finishes it off with his signature colours of army green and camo prints.
Along with the Monsoon Patrol sneakers, ASICSTIGER and SBTG also designed a military inspired, lightweight trench coat to complement the shoes. The Monsoon Patrol jacket features aloe colour sleeves, with “MONSOON PATROL” printed on the back, “STOCK NO: LE-65-138-SBTG” imprinted on the left side of the cuff, and camouflage prints on the inner side of the collar.
