The SneakerLAH x HUNDRED% x ASICS GEL-Lyte 3 Celebrates Malaysia's Love for Teh Tarik

There's nothing better in life than a hot cup of teh tarik.

There's nothing better in life than a hot cup of teh tarik. A milk tea found commonly in restaurants, outdoor stalls, mamaks, and kopitiams across Southeast Asia, this season, it acts as the inspiration behind the SneakerLAH x HUNDRED% x ASICS GEL-Lyte 3. A rare three-way collaboration that pays homage to Malaysia's love for the soul-warming beverage, this special colorway picks up where 2019's SneakerLAH x HUNDRED% x ASICS GEL-Kayano 5 OG "Nasi Lemak" left off.

Wrapped in the rich, golden hues of the pulled tea, this GEL-Lyte 3 is crafted from buttery suede. Interchangeable Tiger Stripes make their way to the left and right sides complete with drip detailing, and the GEL-Lyte midsole is lined with a translucent rubber as a nod to the glass tables found in the mamaks or kopitiams. "Teh Tarik is a national drink that draws Malaysians together from all walks of life, connecting people from different races, cultures, and religion." explains Boon Tib Soom Nik, Country Manager of ASICS Malaysia. "With the GEL-Lyte 3 "Teh Tarik" we hope to share Malaysia's multicultural diversity with the rest of the world, an icon that bridges the gap across generations."
