24 Kilates x Asics Gel-Respector ‘Virgin Extra’ Review
Description
The 24 Kilates x Asics Gel-Respector ‘Virgin Extra’ is a meaningful collaboration with a masterpiece that actually tells a story. Made by 24 Kilates, together with Asics, to celebrate the Spanish brand’s 20thanniversary, these sneakers are inspired by the country’s well-known export, the extra virgin olive oil. Made from premium leather upper, we think the green, purple, and tan colorways perfectly catch the raw Arbequina olives. Sitting atop a responsive cushioning, what delights us is the extra olive leaf hang tag which delivers an adorable final touch.
