The stacked roster of one of the most popular silhouettes juices up even more with a new member, the ASICS Gel Lyte III “Grape”. Taking the iconic ASICS Gel Lyte III and styling it with a historically refreshing theme, this general release colorway is a sure hit for the Summer. Multiple shades of grey dye the mesh base and suede overlays, tonally paired with white branding and hints of black. Teal and grape purple add the coloration throughout, most notably on the famous padded split tongue, inner lining, and half and half on the outsole. Detailing is brought with numerous 3M patches on these crisp “Grapes,” which are available now at END.
Asics Gel Lyte III

While the ASICS Gel Lyte IIIs are popular in large part for their comfort and signature split tongue, the GL III has been the canvas for countless collaborations. The Gel Lyte III has been collaborated on by ASICS retail partners that stretch around the globe, but most famous of all is Ronnie Fieg.

Hide in plain sight with the new ASICS Gel Lyte III “Future Camo”. New for Spring 2014, these Gel Lyte IIIs feature subtle camouflage on the collar and footbed that is trumped by black overlays. Soft nylon composes the undercarriage, while premium leather lies on top. A black base sits on top of a white midsole, contrasted with bright detailing of red and teal on the outsole, laces, and heel name tag. The camouflage material falls in line with a simplistic white, black and grey makeup on the ankle collar and split tongue of these Limited Edition GL3s, which are available now at Hanon.
