If you’ve been following the happenings of the ASICS GEL-LYTE III of late, you’ll have noticed that the silhouette has been dabbling in some fairly unique finishes. From muddled Patch Work pairs to paisley and silk-quilted pairs, the split-tongued silhouette is never short of a reinvention. But, like all classics, the GEL-Lyte III is often at its best when it goes back to basics — and this new “Glacier Grey” pair is an exemplar of that.
Proffering an upper and entirely grey leather, the pair relies on subtle shifts in texture between overlays of contrast. Split tongues and mid panels present with a heavy tumble, while toe boxes, heel overlays, and Tiger Stripes all opt for something a little softer. Liners are color-matched to the upper, but the pair’s laces, eyestays, and sole units opt for varying shades of cream, achieving a level of elegance rarely seen in sneakers these days.
Grab a detailed look at the quilted, paisley pair here below, and if you’re as much in love with these as we are, you can scoop up sizes right now, right here from Foot District.
