These split-tongue anniversary sneakers celebrate ASICS' Gel Lyte III shoe's 25th birthday. A collaboration with BAIT, the black kicks were given the name 'Nightmare,' alluding to their sleek, dark and luxurious look.

The body of the shoe is made from a material with a reptilian texture contrasted against metallic silver mesh side sections. The side panels sport a hexagonal pattern and the laces are made with a rounded design. With a speckled mid-sole to brighten the shoe, the bottoms have a translucent white gum sole that flash brand names as the wearer kicks up their feet while walking. The brand names can also be found on the split snake-like tongue of the shoes.

These anniversary sneakers aren't necessarily meant for athletic activities, as their style boasts a fashionable flair to them.
