The Nike Air Huarache continues to be one of the more unexpected recent successes by the sportswear brand. Today we take a first look at the soon to release Nike Air Huarache “City Pack,” which takes inspiration from four european cities. Consisting of London, Paris, Milan and Berlin, each city’s name is featured on the bottom of a translucent sole and the lace tips, paying homage to the their respective locations. Look out for the release of the Nike Air Huarache “City Pack” at select retailers on May 14.
Created by Shigeyuki Mitsui back in 1990, the GEL-LYTE III broke the mould of conventional shoe design. At a time when high performance shoes lacked style, Mitsui-san wanted to create “the ultimate performance running shoe with the highest level of technology and function,” but one that was “visually pleasing unlike existing shoes at the time.”
The features – such as the unorthodox, yet functional split tongue, which allows for better fit, and a low to high-density midsole, that offers a better distribution of pressure and weight for its wearer – made the GEL-LYTE III unique. Originally created as a runner, the GEL-LYTE III has moved beyond the track and onto the streets.
Embraced as an everyday staple, it has become one of the best-loved shoes in the industry. The GEL-LYTE III is a time-honoured piece of footwear that easily straddles the line between functionality and innovation.
To celebrate the anniversary of the GEL-LYTE III, ASICS and size? have teamed up to create a GEL-LYTE III inspired by a traditional 25th anniversary gift: Tsavorite.
‘Tsavorite’ – [tsah-vuh-rahyt]
The tsavorite is described as a gem that combines beauty, durability and rarity. Today the tsavorite remains one of the last truly ‘wild’ gems; no treatments or synthetics are known to exist.
Although the tsavorite has qualities which make it an extremely popular gemstone, it lacks adequate supply which has led to the gem becoming extremely rare.
A micro-perforated reflective 3M dominates the upper, representing the purity of the ring whilst the green leather sockliner subtly ties into the gemstone.
The size? x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III ‘Tsavorite’ releases Friday 6th March, 2015 at 8:00am. They will be priced at £115 in UK sizes 4 – 13

Time for me to get into the swing of things finally. 2013 is looking to be a very big year for trainer (sneaker) wearers worldwide, with Nike and Reebok leading the way of mass releases, and desirable colour ways which will leave many of you SneakerHeads and HypeBeasts low on money at any given time of the month, let alone around pay day.
My first feature, is the forthcoming Nike Sportwear Perf Pack, which will be releasing on Saturday 16th February via Size?, exclusively. The full pack consists of the following –
Nike Air Max Light ¦ Nike Zoom All Court 2 Low ¦ Nike Blazer ’77 Mid
All made with premium brushed suede or tumbled leather, metal eyelets, and waxed laces. To come in light blue or tan brown for the Air Max Light and Zoom All Court 2 Low, as well as classic colourways for the Blazer ’77 Mid. Unlike most packs that drip release, you will be able to purchase any of the pack on release day.
My personal choice will be the Air Max Light in Obsidian, that’s a winner for me.
Online shoppers hit up – http://www.size.co.uk from Saturday 16th February to grab a pair or 2.
