As we come to a close on its 30th anniversary year, it feels like the ASICS GEL-Lyte III is cramming in as much as it can before the calendar year is through. With four new options that have landed on ASICS Australia today — and not to mention Ronnie Fieg’s THIRTY-piece pack of GL3s over Thanksgiving — it’s pretty evident that we’re seeing the remnants of a COVID-delayed 2020 filling up the back end of the year. One of the aforementioned four that have recently become available Down Under is this ASICS GEL-Lyte IIII “Baltic Jewel” which arrived alongside a matching pair in red earlier today, both of which ostensibly pay tribute to China.
This pair, though sporting the same black patent leather and gold accentuations, comes overlayed in jade green leathers — the primary hardstone of Chinese sculpture. When paired next to the red and gold of its accompanying pair, it’s hard not to make the national association. Both pairs arrive with white perforated leather uppers, color-match split tongues, white liners, and a classic white and black sole unit.
Grab an official look at the pack here below, and if you are planning on picking up a pair this week, make sure you head to our dedicated ASICS Release Dates Calendar to set yourself a reminder for the drops!
