In English the old Japanese proverb, “Tsuru Sen-nen, Kame Man-nen” translates to “Crane lives for 1,000 years; Turtle lives for 10,000 years.” In Japanese culture cranes and turtles are the symbols of long life and longevity.
Using the iconic GEL-LYTE III silhouette, the Crane and Turtle pack use their unique colourways to emphasis their inspiration. The Crane–modeled after the Japanese red crested crane–uses light grey and white with bright bold red accents to bring it to life. While the turtle – in muted olive and sunshine yellow – is reflective of the animal’s unspoken wisdom.
