Pictures of the Bodega x Asics Gel Lyte 5 have finally surfaced! If you didn’t already know, Hypebeast has been releasing precise GPS coordinates that lead to a special pack of this Bodega x Asics Gel Lyte 5. The contents of the package include a pair of the Bodega x Asics Gel Lyte 5 “Gore-Tex”, a wet box for the shoes, an official collaboration jacket, a USB stick that holds the “Get Wet” mixtape, a faux champagne bottle and a stack of 100 one-dollar bills. There will be 6 cities around the world where one pack will be released that include Boston, New York, Los Angeles, London, Sydney and Tokyo.
The first pack was released in Bodega’s home-town of Boston. The lucky winner who tracked down the pair goes by @caddy2489 on Instagram. Taking a closer look at the shoes we can see that they feature a suede and gore-tex upper, yellow rope laces and a blue speckled midsole. While the pairs that are being hidden for people to find are samples, we imagine that the retail pair will look pretty close to these. There is no word on yet on when these will hit retailers but we hope that it’s soon. Stay tuned to FATKIDS® for more information.
