After Patta’s Gel Saga touched down right before the end of the year, the Asics preview earning the most attention was another release from that recently revived model that borrowed from another golden era running legend. And it turns out the Onitsuka Tiger wasn’t done utilizing the early-’90s time capsule ‘Infrared’ look there, as a new Asics Gel Lyte III has popped up with a darker take on the bright red-accented style. They’re joined by a new Gel Lytespeed design that’s based on primary colors, but with the red leaning toward orange and more of a navy blue than classic royal. They’re sufficiently different so as to appeal to every taste, and they just dropped today at Crooked Tongues.
