The Asics Gel-Respector model was quiet for a while but it’s really blasting back onto the scene in a big way. Sneaker retailer 24 Kilates is making sure that you know it’s a pure running shoe with their Extra Virgin Olive Oil-themed release.

The Asics Gel-Respector "Virgin Extra" has been remade to resemble Spain's beloved product -- the olive oil -- and it's a colorful sneaker to look at. Packing rich reds and greens along it’s upper, the shoe is made up of supple suede and leather in various shades to represent the ripe olive. 24 Kilates makes their presence felt by way of the laces bearing their name along with the word Barcelona, and insoles that graphically depict the olive tree.

Overall, this is a great-looking sneaker and each pair comes in a shoe bag, hang tag and bottle of the most refined Extra Virgin Olive Oil. So while you are wearing your fresh kicks, you can drizzle some olive oil on a freshly tossed salad. See what we did there?

The 24 Kilates x Asics Gel-Respector "Virgin Extra" will be available at 24 KIlates in Barcelona and Bangkok on Jan. 9 and stateside a week after.
