The Marvel – Kith X-Men collection features seven colorways for the ASICS GEL-LYTE III Remastered, a modernized version of the classic running shoe that debuted in 1990. Each colorway is dedicated to a different X-Men character: Cyclops, Gambit, Storm, Beast, Rogue, Wolverine, and a limited Wolverine 75 version. The kicks are already so in demand they’re commanding prices over retail for collectors.

Each sneaker is packaged in a co-branded collectible blind box, meaning that the buyer will not know which colorway they will receive until they open it. Additionally, each box comes with a Marvel | Kith for Upper Deck trading card that corresponds to the character’s sneaker, ranging in rarity from black to silver. 

PSA, the leading authority in sports card authentication and grading, also grades the included trading cards. This marks the first time in PSA’s history that another brand’s logo will share grading on the tab. The black, green, gold, blue, and red cards are encased in PSA-graded slabs, while the orange, pink, and silver cards are encased in one-touch cases. Kith even created a limited edition Marvel comic and a special Arcade1up Kith edition of the Marvel Vs Capcom 2 Arcade game with classic Jim Lee art on the cabinet.
