Sneaker retailer Concepts is opening up shop in Miami and they are pulling out all the stops for the occasion. They’ve teamed up with Asics for a special release and the theme of the collaboration is pretty incredible.

They’ve chosen to honor the city’s history with the coca plant by way of a green suede Asics Gel Respector with a gum outsole. A white midsole and trimming provides some great contrast and serves as a nod to the processed plant as well which really ties the theme together.

It should also be noted that this is the first time the Asics Gel Respector was ever granted a collaboration, which makes the release doubly dope and noteworthy.

You’ll be able to pick up a pair on Dec. 5 at Concepts' Miami location and at their online store. In addition, to fully execute the theme, the store is picking up customers from an undisclosed location and taking them to a stash house to cop the kicks. You can also pick them up at their Boston location and their retail spot in New York.
