sn 9 at 9 asics collabs 1 Sneaker News NINE@NINE: Asics Collaborations

The stateside profile of Asics’ various retro silhouettes has been on a steady rise for a number of years now. While their classic Gel cushioned runners definitely built the foundation for this, it’s no secret that the various collab partners who have chipped in with their special edition designs helped build up the brand’s lifestyle efforts. Quite a few of those pairs remain relatively obscure today though, seeing as how the era of their debut was a pretty different one for footwear enthusiasts. On top of that, the collaborators have historically skewed non-American, so the distribution of these sort of pairs was usually a bit harsh for Yankees. But it’s a new day for Asics in the US; more and more shops have them around and more and more of us are checking for them.

Sneaker News just brought you images of a new ZX 8000 design from adidas Originals that utilized a couple shifts in the most basic color shades to give the shoe a unique finished look.  Good news for anyone who found that style appealing, as today we have a look at a new drop from another brand that utilizes a similar style (which one’s better?).  The Asics Gel-Lyte Speed comes through in a white base accented by what looks like from a distance the three primary colors of pigment, though a closer look reveals the ‘red’ to be done in a lycopene-y shade closer to orange that’s earned this model a ‘Tomato’ nickname.  Check them out from a variety of other angles after the jump and find yours at select retailers like Hanon.

asics spring 2012 1 570x381 Asics Gel Lyte III + Gel Lyte Speed   Spring 2012

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.

If you’ve been paying attention to all the Asics heat we’ve been showing off around here as of late, you’ll recall an upcoming Asics Gel Saga in a clean infrared colorway as a standout. That upcoming banger is actually an echo of the Asics Gel-Lyte Speed shown here, which uses a bright yellow rather than the burning red as the accenting color. It even brings in a bit of cement-like speckling on the midsole, a touch we’ve seen to great effect on the Asics Gel-Lyte III. These started hitting select overseas retailers at the tail end of 2011, but if you’re still on the hunt for a pair, then hit up Germany’s own Afew Store after you check the full photos we’ve got lined up.
