Dank Customs applies the hybrid theory once again on the Gel Max 90 “Flamingo” Custom. A split tongue reconstructs the Nike retro runner to ASICS appropriation while tones of grey, orange and blue revise it in Ronnie Fieg fashion. Check out this one-of-one JW Danklefs creation in the photos below. Let us know in the comment section if this is a custom you’d rock.
Asics Gel Lyte III
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.
Adding to its résumé of colorways, the ASICS Gel Lyte III turns up in a Grey/Black-Teal color scheme. Opting for a combination of materials on the upper, grey suede and black mesh take turns up top, marked with hits of teal on the heel counter and eyelets. A white midsole keeps the kick honest, featuring grey speckles, with teal being reintroduced on the outsole. Available now at Titolo, you can pick up this Gel Lyte III for €132 (~$180).
Warm enough for the winter but far from bland, the ASICS Gel Lyte III Light Brown/Olive offers a season shifting color palette. A chameleon colorway, this makeup can wear well with a holiday sweater or look dapper in the desert with the right fit. Canvas composition and light brown suede allow such range, with an Aztec print underlay also adding flexible flavor to the Gel Lyte III silo. Gum soles and green accents complete this pair, set to launch soon at select ASICS accounts.
Whether you’re a lover or a hater, the latest ASICS production has something for you. Gearing up for Valentine’s Day in a couple of weeks, the ASICS “Lovers and Haters” Pack features two of the brand’s most significant silhouettes and places them in contrasting colors. Representing the lovers is a new red and white rendition of the ASICS Gel Saga, which uses simplistic color blocking with subtle detailing. A red mesh base and suede overlays join a lasered heel panel and white branding to create a clean combination. On the flip side, a black/red-gold version of the beloved ASICS Gel Lyte III represents the dark side of the holiday. Which side of the spectrum are you on?

After a stellar showcase of collaborative kicks from the tandem in 2013, BAIT and ASICS are poised to team up again on the Gel Lyte III. The portmanteau’d “Basics Model-002 Guardian” shows up sueded and sheer, building off of a dark olive base, with camo print filling in the blanks, concealed by a transparent veil. Complete with black wax laces and black branding, the wintertime toned-down theme is achieved, with a contrast infused via a white speckled midsole and hits of orange providing pops of color. Check out the partnership sneak in the detailed photos up top and be on the lookout for these Gel Lyte IIIs to drop at BAIT Diamond Bar and BAIT Orange County on January 25th for $150, or register online today for a pair here.
