After the successful collaboration on the Gel Lyte "OG" by Patta, size? is gonna work next on this highly anticipated silhouette.

Size? took their inspiration from the long-lasting Japanese baseball culture. The Japanese raised quickly a culture to travel to the games of their local team and it got a family tradition to support the team as the fathers took their kids to the games to enjoy the family life.

The choice of materials is directly influenced by the sport. The light grey satin on the sidewall underlay and the toebox refers to the classic baseball Jerseys which have been worn back then. The most interesting detail in my opinion is the stitching on the heeltab. It’s stitched to look like the stitching of an actual baseball. Finally, the iconic tiger stripes are made to represent the pitchers glove. Overall, the combination of the grey upper with some blue accents makes this collaboration a must cop. Well done size?! Limited to 500 pieces worldwide, the Gel Lyte OG by size? will be available over the size? App and selected size? stores.
