One of the UK’s premier shops, Offspring, has collaborated with Onitsuka Tiger and their parent company Asics to create the “Desert Pack.” Consisting of two silhouettes, the Asics Gel-Lyte V and the Onisuka Tiger Shaw Runner, the pack’s theme is the blistering cold that a desert can be at night. Deserts are not always warm; for instance, the Sahara Desert experiences a 50° F change in temperature between daytime and nighttime. The lack of clouds and moist air propels the temperature downward after sunset, leading to extremely cold nights.
The Asics Gel-Lyte V of this pack rocks a beige/tan mesh and suede upper with a dark wine colored toewrap and side panel accent. it represents sunset in the desert and all the different colors one can see. Blue hits the midsole (with white speckle), tongue branding, and inner lining. The Onitsuka Tiger Shaw Runner flaunts an almost completely blue build with navy suede and mesh construction, accented by a lighter tropical blue on the side panel branding and inner lining. This part of the pack symbolizes the darkness and isolation of the desert at night.
