Did you know that the number 5 is conjectured to be the only odd untouchable number? If this is the case then five is the only odd prime number that is not the base of an aliquot tree. Just so you know…

Anyways, I am proud to announce Patta will be celebrating it’s 5th anniversary this year, and to engage in the festivities, we will present a series of collaborative products throughout all of 2009.

To set things off properly, we have once again teamed up with the fine people at Asics to follow up on the highly successful Patta x Asics Gel Lyte III released in 2007, the same year we released a series of Patta Artist sweaters.

It’s these aforementioned sweater-designs by our creative friends Delta, Eric Elms and Parra that we liked so much, that we decided to puzzle the fresh color combinations and graphics into a pack of 3 shoes. Not to take anything away from the great shoe that is the Gel Lyte III, which has become a staple of sorts today, but we wanted something different this time… Enter the Asics Gel Lyte Speed.

So there you have it, the Patta x Asics Gel Lyte Speed Pack, inspired by the works of Delta, Eric Elms and Parra, who all gave their blessings and extended a helping hand by putting the cherries on top with the lining and insole graphics. Launch will take place at Patta January 31st. More information coming soon, so please stay tuned… Here are detailed shots.
