While brands across the sneaker industry have done well to lessen their impact on the environment, there’s still quite a bit of work left to do. ASICS would likely agree with this sentiment, as they’ve just developed a brand new, more sustainable version of one of their most iconic sneakers: the GEL-LYTE III.
Making its debut just ahead of the first official day of Fall, the ASICS GEL-LYTE III CM 1.95 champions sustainability through a more modernized lens, resulting in a design that’s extremely distinct from Shigeyuki Mitsui’s original blueprint. In addition to boasting recycled materials and solution-dyed polyester, the model features an innovative taping structure that allows the shoe to be constructed with less materials. What’s more, the cushioning is composed with a carbon-negative foam that’s as forgiving to the wearer as it is the environment.
Enjoy a detailed look at the ASICS GEL-LYTE III CM 1.95 via the official images ahead. These are slated to release on September 22nd via ASICS Australia; a global release is likely to accompany, though an exact date has yet to be confirmed.
