ASICS is back for 2016 with a bang, kicking off with another fantastically executed “Valentine’s Pack.” What is now becoming a recurring theme for ASICS has seen some brilliant colourways be placed on classic models like the Gel-Lyte V and the Gel Saga, but this year the Gel-Lyte III takes centre stage. Fresh off the back of its 25th anniversary, the Gel-Lyte III is given all-red and all-black colour-ups, with both featuring the “crinkled” pattern on the heel that so brilliantly set off the Gel-Lyte V and the Gel-Lyte III from last year’s pack. The red iteration of the Gel-Lyte III features white Cupid’s arrows on the tongue, which adds a subtle pop to the shoe whilst also fitting the theme of the pack perfectly. The black iteration features a clean, minimalistic design, with the red “GEL LYTE III” stitching on the heel adding a shot of colour whilst taking nothing away from the overall aesthetic. Both colourways feature premium suedes, along with the classic textile hits on the toe-box, lateral and medial sides of each shoe which provide that retro feel. These different materials also produce different shades of red and black on each shoe, which gives both pairs a truly unique look. These will be releasing with us on the 1st February, so you’ve got more than enough time to secure a pair for your other half.
