The Gel Lyte III has been the subject of countless interpretations. This makes perfect sense; not only is the Gel Lyte III one of the crown jewels of the Asics archive, the shoe’s pleasing, tech running shape translates across countless designs.
At heart, though, the Gel Lyte III is a performance running shoe from 1991. The original spirit of the Gel Lyte III heavily informs the latest collaborative effort from Asics and Slam Jam.
This Gel Lyte III balances a sleek, functional athleticism with the vivid confidence of early 90s design. A dark grey carrying the metallic edge of burnished steel is offset by accents in turquoise and orange, two colors that were all the rage in 1991. The gradient midsole encapsulates the whole project by bringing these disparate color influences together.
