These Highs & Lows x ASICS sneakers celebrate the glory of the silver screen, historically and today.

Australian streetwear shop Highs & Lows collaborated with ASICS to create this pair of 'Silverscreen' sneakers. The special sneakers celebrate not only the history of the cinema, but also the legacy of the Gel-Lyte II sneaker silhouette. The shoe is the most popular in ASICS' lifestyle range, and sees its 25th anniversary this year. In recognition of the Gel-Lyte II's history, Highs & Lows designed this colorway which also commemorates the history of its hometown of Mount Lawley in Perth, Australia. Mount Lawley is home to the Astor Theater, an art deco cinema first opened in 1936. The Highs & Lows Gel-Lyte II carries the colors of the Astor Theater's classic aqua and magenta neon sign.
