As far as sneaker customizers go, SBTG is among the elite whose creations inspire the same in-depth coverage as an exclusive boutique collaboration. He’s been tapped by Japan retailer Kicks Lab store for an official Asics release that is amazing to look at.

SBTG let his imagination run wild atop the Asics Gel Lyte V and he gave the shoe a plush militaristic makeover. The sneaker features a tan and olive suede upper with a quilted nylon toe box and branded velcro tongue tag. A gum bottom gives the silhouette a rugged feel and completes the sneaker in the best possible way.

Look out for the Kicks Lab x Asics Gel Lyte V "Phs Ed" to drop at U.K. retailers Hanon and Overkill and other stores on Saturday (Jan. 23).
