Sneaker Freaker Magazine is back in 2014 with a follow-up to their box office hit Alvin Purple Gel Lyte III and it comes in the form of Alvin’s rampant love child Melvin! As if Alvin’s antics weren’t enough SF revisit the inspiration for their first Asics collaboration but this time it’s base is the fantastic Gel Kayano Trainer.
The colourway takes inspiration from the “Melvin, Son of Alvin” movie artwork, applying deep onyx tones with bright yellow accents with a small hint of Lavender to echo the first part of this project. As with all Sneaker Freaker releases the details aren’t lacking with speckled midsole, 3M flecks along the cage and heel counter as well as asymmetrical blocking on the medial side of each shoe.
Coming equipped with two sets of laces (black/white speckle or black/yellow speckle) the Son of Alvin does not disappoint when you stack it up against all of Sneaker Freaker’s previous efforts. Teamed with the fantastic base that is the Gel Kayano Trainer and you have a collaboration that once again does Australia proud!
The Sneaker Freaker x Asics Gel Kayano Trainer “Melvin Son of Alvin” will release this Saturday October 18. As always we will have in-store release at 10am and any remaining pairs will go online HERE at 12-midday. Don’t miss out!!
