The start of 2021 feels like the prelude to a worldwide flooding (if you see a man transporting animals onto an ark; do everything in your power to get on it). Then, we remember, ah, it's the monsoon season. And then, remembered that climate change also has something to do with the continuous downpour. It is this sort of weather that allows us to dust off that hoodie or raincoat. Maybe even a pair of Monsoon Patrol sneakers.
But that pair came out in 2018. Now, an updated version of the Monsoon Patrol is set to be released this Thursday (7th January). ASICS, Limited Edt and local sneaker artist, SBTG, come together once more for the Monsoon Patrol II.
Taking ASICS' urban-styled GEL-LYTE III model and updating it with a reflective "spell out" logo on the shroud and an alternative 'Rebel Lace System' (elastic laces and toggle fasteners that wrap around the shoes for convenience and functionality). Meant to be waterproof, Monsoon Patrol II is highlighted with SBTG's signature Parsillia camo.
Apparently, there are two colourways for the Monsoon Patrol II. First is the lichen green/piedmont grey look; a monochromatic take on first Monsoon Patrol. Then there is the black version. We don't have images nor information of the black Monsoon Patrol II but we heard that the run for it might be limited.
The Monsoon Patrol II retails for SGD209 while the black version retails for SGD249. (LICHEN GREEN/PIEDMONT GREY) and $249 (BLACK/BLACK) and will be available online at Limited Edt and SBTG's websites. The shoes will also be available at 313 Somerset and CHAMBER at Wisma Atria.
