ASICS reimagines Shigeyuki Mitsui's 1990 running shoe as a lifestyle offering with a suede upper.
Designed by Shigeyuki Mitsui as a running shoe, the ASICS Gel-Lyte III is now more of a lifestyle offering. The Phantom Grey colorway makes this clear. While it retains the split tongue and GEL heel cushioning of the original, its suede upper, with a heathered overlay in the center, makes it clear this shoe is more for the street than the track. Finished with subtle light-yellow details on the toe and heel, it's ideal for pairing with a pair of jeans for casual wear.
