When this asics Gel Lyte III landed on our desk we were smitten. It’s just damn cool. 2013 saw asics release a range of great styles and clearly 2014 is going to bring more of the same. This premium black leather style is lined with subtle deconstructed camouflage while turquoise accents add colour.

So how do you present a shoe that’s this cool? Well we decided we’d put it in ice, obviously. We knew what we wanted it to look like but we had a few logistical nightmares. Here’s a sneak peek behind the scenes (oh the glamour).

 

Step 1: Fill a standard plastic box with water. (We twice boiled the water so it would freeze clear, it didn’t.) Put it in the freezer and leave for 24+ hours.

Step 2: get the ice out of the box, this may prove problematic. Use boiling water and assorted tools to chisel away.

 Step 3: Try and use the winter sun to melt it/revel in all it’s icy glory!
