Recognized for its split-tongue design and GEL technology cushioning, the ASICS GEL-Lyte 3 is already turning thirty this year. To celebrate, the silhouette revisits its “Made In Japan” collection to inspire a premium style that indulges in Okayama Denim.
This new release embraces Japan’s artisanal workmanship by covering the entirety of its uppers in Selvege denim. The classic blue jean materials are complemented by high-quality leather overlays in a near identical shade. ASICS and GEL-Lyte 3 branding on the tongue and heel, respectively, are stylized to mimic the brown tags stitched onto denim clothing. The aforementioned brown also colors the GEL-branded heel tab and the outsole to round out the celebratory design.
Take a closer look at the GEL-Lyte 3 below, which is available now at ASICS.com with a price tag of $120.
