After months of teasing, the ASAP Rocky x Under Armour SRLo has an official release date.
Shot by Eddie Lee for HYPEBEAST, the “secret shoes” will release tonight in Harlem at a multi-story pop-up experience with the location yet to be disclosed. The space, like the shoes, will be inspired by ’90s rave and skate culture with exclusive merch also available.
Both all-black and black/blue colorways of the SRLo will release to the tune of 250 pairs each for $250 a pop. The first 500 customers in line will be granted access to the event space with presumably one-in, one-out access taking place to the party over the course of the night.
While 3M accents, HOVR technology and AWGE tagging are all present, Osiris D3 inspiration isn’t just apparent, it’s calculated. In a new interview with GQ, Rocky reveals that UA brought on original Osiris D3 rider Dave Mayhew to assist with the project. This is a tad controversial as there is a long-standing discrepancy over who actually designed the original D3 with Brian Reid claiming credit and The Hundreds backing such stance. Still, it’s cool the D3 DNA is both explained and explored.
The ASAP Rocky x Under Armour SRLo is finally releasing tonight in Harlem. Will more pairs pop up on the market later? We sure hope so. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more details.
