Asics GLIII x Hanon ‘Solstice’ – Blue Fire!


Since ASICS Tiger’s GEL-LYTE III and Hanon are celebrating their 25th Anniversaries, it is only fitting that these long time collaborators have come together to mark the occasion with a new take on the iconic sneaker.

The “Solstice” GEL-LYTE III is inspired by the longest and shortest days of the year, where the effects of these yearly changes are felt the strongest in northern countries like Scotland, where Hanon is based. The collaboration revisits the night skies and astronomical theme from past projects.

Hanon’s northerly location and “the gloaming” – also known as twilight, the time before sunrise and after sunset, casts a rich blue hue over the night skies during the summer months. These vibrant shades are the inspiration behind the two-toned colourway of the “Solstice” GEL-LYTE III. The Celtic knot and flame pattern, an ancient symbol associate with the solstice and incorporated into the sneakers design, is also a nod to Hanon’s rich Scottish roots.

The Hanon GEL-LYTE III will be available, 28 November, 2015 at and Hanon and a selection of retailers  retailers globally.
