The Asics GEL-Lyte III returns this year, still fresh off an incredible string of releases for the shoe’s thirtieth-anniversary. This week, the classic running shoe has emerged in a new two-pack of tonal colorways, constructed from soft Kidskin leather, coming soon.

2020 was the thirtieth-anniversary of Asics’ GEL-Lyte III running shoe, a revolutionary design backed by decades of Japanese sports research and craftsmanship. So, as the brand celebrated the shoe’s anniversary last year, we saw dozens of GLIII releases, including high-profile collaborations, rereleased OG colorways, and plenty more. Now, as we head into the new year, Asics is starting 2021 off with two simple new additions to the lineup. Arriving in a pack of tonal black and white colorways, the latest GLIIIs from Asics feature a unique construction in Kidskin leather, an ultrasoft material typically used in the construction of gloves due to its comfort, weather resistance, and durability over time. The result is two incredibly comfortable colorways of the GEL-Lyte III that require hardly any break-in time due to the nature of the materials used.


Asics’ latest colorway of the legendary GEL-Lyte III released earlier this week overseas from retailers like Japan’s atmos. The soft new Kidskin leather construction comes with a price tag of approximately $125, with a global release planned for the coming weeks.
