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 V “Red Mamba”

After dropping a white version of the GEL-Respector and a black colorway of the fan-favorite GEL-Lyte III, ASICS is back with a brand new addition to its snake-inspired “Mamba” pack for Summer 2015.

Coming in the form of the GEL-Lyte V, the release echoes the aesthetic of the previous two drops, donning a luxurious faux snakeskin upper and a monochromatic execution — in this case, a bright red hue.

Retailing for $130 USD, the “Red Mamba” take on the GEL-Lyte V is available now via Sneaker Politics while supplies last.

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.
