Ho! Ho! Ho! ASICS spreads some holiday cheer this winter with the 2014 “Christmas” Pack, featuring two of the brand’s classic runners in premium Christmas-themed makeovers. There are two models, but you’ll get three options, as the pack contains a duo of the Gel Saga and one colorway of the Gel-Lyte III. Each model is inspired by Christmas icons, but in not-so-obvious ways by the use of non-conventional hues and unique color blocks.
First up is the “Christmas Tree” Gel Saga, featuring a blend of pine green and a contrasting toe in dark grey for the all-suede upper. Accents come in burgundy, while the festive striped laces add some final decoration.
Santa Claus is represented on the other Gel Saga within the pack. But don’t think of the modern, bright red-suited Santa with rosy cheeks and a cookie gut, think of the more traditional, old-timey Mr. Clause rocking a long burgundy coat—just like these Sagas—in the same dark red hue. Like the “Christmas Tree” version, these also have a contrasting toe color, this time in tan, while dark brown takes care of the side stripes.
Finishing up the trio of Christmas colorways is the “Snowman” Gel-Lyte III, outfitted in a white leather and grey suede upper, topped off with orange striped laces to represent an essential part of every snowman, the carrot nose.
To tie the pack together, along with the striped laces, each shoe also sits on a snowy-white midsole, while the insoles each receive a spotted graphic, adding to the magic that this time of year always brings.
Add the ASICS Christmas pack to your Wish List, and hope Santa brings you a pair.
