Classic Contrasts! ASICS Brings Back The GEL-Lyte III OG

Back to the basics!

The good folks over at ASICS are back at it again. Today the iconic sportswear imprint is back with a new take on an old classic. The GEL-Lyte III OG returns, doing so in two new neutral colorways that are sure to elevate your footwear collection. The latest iterations arrive shortly after the model was retooled in a new red “Daruma Doll” inspired motif.

The first of two new pairs come rocking a dark aesthetic with exquisite attention to detail. The sneaker is seen with a stark black leather upper, which is accented by hits of white. The contrasting elements are seen on the mid-foot netting, outlines of the tiger stripes, “GEL-LYTE III” heel branding, and sock liners. Tonal ASICS branding makes a nice touch, while the outsole extends the all-black approach of the design.


The second pair takes on a two-toned look comprised of lighter neutrals. The upper is crafted from supple leather while rocking an all-white aesthetic throughout. The sneakers are contrasted by details of soft gray seen on the liners, mid-foot mesh, lateral rear text hits, and the midsoles. More darker accents are seen in the midsole, adding a smooth contrast in the process.

The new sneakers are sleek and stylish, making them a welcome addition to any collection of kicks. Do yourself a favor and check out the impressive new two-pack of sneakers in the images and pick up your favorites on January 15th from retailers such as atmos. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for all the best in new footwear coming soon.
