In celebration of Ice Cream Day 2021, Nice Kicks‘ latest collaboration with ASICS called, “Nice Cream” is inspired by their team’s favorite summer destination, an ice cream parlor.
That nostalgic feeling of walking through the doors of a parlor. Getting smacked in the face with the cold ice cream parlor air. Your eyes darting around the ice cream case in search of the perfect flavor. The anticipation that comes as your choice gets scooped up and placed into your hands. That singular ice cream parlor experience is something the creative team wanted to capture with this release.
This ASICS Gel Lyte III is just like the classic dessert destination in that it blends different ingredients together for delicious results. Using variety of materials to truly make a high quality and unique sneaker. The color palette derives from the classic ice cream parlor flavors vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate.
The Ice Cream Story is told on the shoe with a White outsole, patent leather, tonal net, and a splatter mid piece. There are two sets of laces. One pair is tonal while the other is Emerald Green. A cherry hangtag is included to top off the design. Emerald Green tint, that you might see on glassware in a vintage ice cream parlor, is what is utilized on the laces and cherry on top hangtag.
Ice Cream theming continues with a flip White Matte shoe box. The box is modeled after a milkshake glass, and you can see the shoe’s colors through the translucent parts of it. A gloss hit of melting milkshake is part of the design as well.
