We reach the end of the list. As our Death List 5 Project comes to a close, we finish things off with the leader of the sinister serpents that came before…Snake Charmer.
The Gel Lyte V has taken the vintage-tech running world by storm, winning over new fans of this look, and pleasing the true-school purists that know how much of a gem the Gel Lyte V already is.
“Snake Charmer” takes the shoe to another level with an aesthetic suited for a gentlemen, as well as a samurai. Plush black suede sits underneath “cowboy” brown leather overlays that evoke the type of Spaghetti Western gem of jacket, you might find in a vintage store on the outskirts of a barren desert. This combination is set atop a tasty cream-colored midsole, and probably our favorite of all the materials we’ve used thus far – purple paisley printed nylon!
The in-store release info for our 2 locations is listed below, but we urge you to stay tuned as this last week leading up to our Snake Charmer Gel Lyte V, will be just as fun as the last 5 months of this whole Death List 5 project!
