Since its release in 1991, the Gel Lyte III has been a favorite retro runner in the Asics catalogue, but where as the silhouette has been given special treatment through prints and collaborations like the BAIT “Nippon Blues”, it’s always great to see the runner return to original form. The split-tongue classic returns today in a colorway straight from the 90s with this “Grape” aesthetic – one Jordan Brand fans will be well aware of. Utilizing a mixture of greys on the base that alternate through suede and mesh, the shoe gets a bevy of turquoise accents ont he laces and heel while grape purple finds its way to half of the outsole and inner lining. Stick around after the click to get a full view of this latest Asics release and know that you can pick up your size via select retailers like Politics today.
