Wale X Villa Collab Brings Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Bottle Rocket’

Last month, the American rapper from Washington D.C. announced his partnership to bring a shoe to the market with retailer Villa. Wale is a great choice for coming up with a colorway, because he’s a huge sneaker head and always grabs a feature in our Celebrity Kicks. They would come together and create the “Bottle Rocket. That name can be correlated into the little fireworks that you stick into bottles and light up.


See the connection? If you missed it, celebrate America’s Independence Day with the “Bottle Rockets.” Fitting for the occasion, these will have a red, white, and blue theme on a black base. The Gel-Lyte III has been popular before with the RF and Bait collabs. It looks like Wale pulled inspiration from the Lance Mountain X Air Jordan 1.

Since this is just the teaser photo, the information is still scarce.  From the slight investigative work, the branding is red on one side and blue on the outer medial side. It’ll be ready for Independence Day, these will release a week prior to the holiday on June 26, 2015 for $150.
