In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the silhouette, VILLA and rapper Wale have teamed up with ASICS to craft an Independence Day-themed “Bottle Rocket” edition of the GEL-Lyte III. First teased earlier this month, the design boasts a predominately black upper, donning premium leather paneling as a white star motif appears beneath black mesh overlays. Additional touches are highlighted by patriotic red, white and blue accents across the likes of the laces, branding, speckled midsole and rubber outsole while reflective touches evoke the explosive nature of the shoe’s namesake.

The “Bottle Rocket” edition of the popular split-tongued retro will be available at VILLA in limited quantities beginning June 26.
