The iconic GEL-LYTE III is, a silhouette that was so far ahead of its time when it dropped in 1990. With its triple-density sole and split tongue. However, it wasn’t until the mid-2000s when the silhouette really hit its peak and was picked up by footwear enthusiasts globally and turned into one of the most-beloved lifestyle sneakers of the time.
This latest iteration from ASICS dubbed the "Back Streets of Japan" is a clean and considered execution that takes the colours and hues of urban cityscapes as its inspiration behind its colour palette. From the grey concrete of infrastructure to the neon glow of Tokyo's advertisements in the rain each iteration portrays a different time of day and mood. Comprised in a classic combination of suede and mesh each shoe features all the hallmarks we've come to expect from the Gel Lyte III including that ultra-dependable Gel Cushioned sole unit.
