Correction: This is NOT a Patta designed colorway. Our apologies for the error.
Part three of our preview of the recent drop of Asics kicks is this pair of very clean Gel Lyte III’s. Asics is a brand that has a long tradition of good colorways, and good designs, and this latest effort has created a few more feathers for them to add to their cap. Previewed earlier here, this very calming pair of kicks is a pretty good drop for the company, and shows Asics impressive creativity in designing solid colorways. The mesh toebox should please fans of said material a great deal, and the rest of the shoe’s design should as well, as the Gel Lyte III is definitely one of the brand’s strongest pieces. As far as colorways go, the use of pink and purple is very calm here, with muted colors combining to form a very nice pair of kicks that goes easy on the eyes. Pink and purple can’t usually be described as very subtle colors, but this piece definitely mutes them down to make them as such. Little is known about the availability of this subtle colorway of the GT II but so far only Patta and The Rivington Club have them.
