Fashion | Asics Gel Lyte 3 “Miami Vice”

Asics have long been a top contender in running sneakers, so it’s only fair to see that the brand are pulling out some top notch colour ways, and material combinations for their up and coming Gel Lyte 3 releases. The forthcoming “Miami Vice” pack, sees 2 colours ways releasing, one in a true White leather upper, teamed with orange and blue, and the other part of the pack, are these all black textured leather uppers, with the blue interior, white mid sole and orange soles.

While this colorway of the Gel Lyte 3 doesn’t exactly scream Spring or Summer to us, it’s still a nice sneaker that you can rock during any time of the year. This versatile runner features a black textured leather on the upper while hints of color have been added with a teal inner lining and an orange outsole. A white midsole provides some contrast to the shoe and tonal laces keep the sneaker looking clean.

Fashion | size? x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III ‘Tsavorite’

Created by Shigeyuki Mitsui back in 1990, the GEL-LYTE III broke the mould of conventional shoe design. At a time when high performance shoes lacked style, Mitsui-san wanted to create “the ultimate performance running shoe with the highest level of technology and function,” but one that was “visually pleasing unlike existing shoes at the time.”

The features – such as the unorthodox, yet functional split tongue, which allows for better fit, and a low to high-density midsole, that offers a better distribution of pressure and weight for its wearer – made the GEL-LYTE III unique. Originally created as a runner, the GEL-LYTE III has moved beyond the track and onto the streets.

Embraced as an everyday staple, it has become one of the best-loved shoes in the industry. The GEL-LYTE III is a time-honoured piece of footwear that easily straddles the line between functionality and innovation.

To celebrate the anniversary of the GEL-LYTE III, ASICS and size? have teamed up to create a GEL-LYTE III inspired by a traditional 25th anniversary gift: Tsavorite.

‘Tsavorite’ – [tsah-vuh-rahyt]

The tsavorite is described as a gem that combines beauty, durability and rarity. Today the tsavorite remains one of the last truly ‘wild’ gems; no treatments or synthetics are known to exist.

Although the tsavorite has qualities which make it an extremely popular gemstone, it lacks adequate supply which has led to the gem becoming extremely rare.

A micro-perforated reflective 3M dominates the upper, representing the purity of the ring whilst the green leather sockliner subtly ties into the gemstone.

Fashion | ASICS Gel Lyte III “Okayama Denim” Pack

Japanese denim is most often used on, well, jeans. But today ASICS ensures the durable fabric finds placement elsewhere, in this case on the Gel Lyte III. In line with the brand’s Spring 2015 lineup, the ASICS Gel Lyte III “Okayama Denim” Pack makes great use of the dark camo denim throughout two Gel Lyte III’s with placement at the toe, collar, heel and paneling. One of the models highlights a blacked-out leather aesthetic while its counterpart takes to red accents at the striping, rear and outsole. Look for the release on February 20th at select international retailers.
