After 10 months of waiting one of the most anticipated ASICS Gel Lyte lll is finally in my hands. Part of the Urban Camo pack that includes a Gel Saga, these beauties were previewed all the way back in January of this year ( I believe it was at Bread and Butter). This is one of those rare times when you read about a general release receive an abundance of hype without the word “collaboration” behind it. Though fully synthetic, there are certain details which make this make-up stand out. For one, the suede is a bit thicker here. Much more than the “Black and Tan” color-way I posted yesterday. It comes dressed with a perforated toe-box as opposed to a mesh one. An accent very popular nowadays with the Gel Lyte lll. Something we can thank Ronnie Fieg for. The release also contains 3M beneath the tiger stripes and on the heel. Something I forgot to mention in the post for the “Black and Tan” pair because it doesn’t have that. The last two details has the ankle liner with some cool decoration on the material and the insoles have a camouflage print of blues and black. Off course, I can’t forget the dope color blocking of grey, black and light blue that brings everything together nicely…
