ASICS GEL-Lyte EVO “Samurai” Pack

The latest modernized takes on the beloved GEL-Lyte III are fit for the dojo thanks to ASICS’s upcoming release of the GEL-Lyte EVO “Samurai” pack. Looking to the military nobility of early-modern Japan for inspiration, the pack sees a trio of colorways with tonal armor-esque uppers as speckling and gradients decorate the design’s dual-density midsole.

Complete with the EVO’s signature four-piece tooling, the trio of “Samurai” executions are due out October 16 at ASICS stockists in the UK.

ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Off-White Croc”

Perhaps a close second in terms of luxuriousness to the upcoming veg-tanned edition of the GEL-Lyte III — which is limited to just 300 pairs and will retail for $500 USD — is this off-white release from ASICS. Decked out in faux croc skin throughout, the tonal design is one of the cleanest GEL-Lyte IIIs to date, coupling an off-white leather upper with a matching rubber outsole, stark white GEL-cushioned midsole and matching lining.

Available now via atmos, the kicks will likely make their way to additional ASICS stockists in the coming weeks.
