Here we take a closer examination of the well-received “Cottonmouth” release from ASICS and New York-based retailer Extra Butter. The sneaker, composed of cushy premium suede, leather and mesh around the upper, is executed perfectly in a purple-to-white gradient. The dark purple skies of crisp winter evenings are tempered by white speckled accents around the forefoot, in turn making graceful reference to snowfall. The interior is a textured, luxurious pink foam, meticulously stitched to hint at the body’s most essential organ. Enjoy a look at the shoe above, which will be available October 10 at Extra Butter L.E.S. and online at 12 p.m. EDT.
