An essential silhouette for any sneakerhead, Mitsui-san's iconic Gel Lyte III returns in its OG colourway to celebrate 30 years of the model.
Designed by Shigeyuki Mitsui in 1990, the iconic ASICS Gel Lyte III returns in its OG colourway to celebrate the silhouette's 30th anniversary. Realised in a combination of citrus and green, the style remains as cutting edge as it did upon original release.
A performance runner at its core, the Gel Lyte III set the tone for many sneakers to follow. Boasting a ground-breaking tri-density EVA midsole and a vertically extended midfoot frame for increased motion control, Mitsui-san's silhouette offered the perfect blend of support, comfort and technical capability.
Away from the running track, the sneaker found adoration with the sneakerhead crowd thanks, in part, to its signature split-tongue construction and forward-thinking colour combinations. Primed for a contemporary twist, the Gel Lyte III offers an esoteric stylisation that appeals not only to the sneakerhead camp, but to the fashion-forward alike.
A certified must-have in any sneaker collection, the OG returns this season to celebrate 30 years of this essential style. The ASICS Gel Lyte III sneaker is available for registration online now via END. Launches.
