GEL-LYTE III – Dedication to the Legendary Asics

Asics, the Japanese brand founded in 1949 name after the Latin phrase anima sana in corpore sano, which means “Healthy soul in a healthy body”, probably the best thing we could ever wish upon during this epidemic season. This 2020 is also the 30th year anniversary of ASICS GEL-LYTE III Since 1970.


In the entire GEL-LYTE family, it is undoubtedly the most “OG” item of the GEL-LYTE III born in 1990. According to designer Shigeyuki Mitsui’s memories, he hoped to make a pair of new era kicks that could bring the running shoes trend back, but GEL-LYTE III had later become a classic of the ASICS, and even led the retro running shoes culture around 2010 which was beyond his expectations.

As for the successful transformation of GEL-LYTE III from retro running shoes to trendy retro shoes, Mitsui has his own views. In his eyes, this is not only because GEL-LYTE III has always been innovative in color matching and details. It has adopted more and more new design over time.
