The Gel Lyte III is to Asics what the Dunk is to Nike. When streetwear companies and boutiques are looking to take a sporty approach with one of their collaborations, they’ve been known to look to Asics and their ultra comfortable Gel Lyte III. Japanese boutique mita is a familiar face when it comes to Asics collabo’s and this coming Fall we’ll see another Gel Lyte III they’ve developed with the footwear brand.
Thanks to HighSnobiety we’ve got an early look at what’s to come. Upon looking at the exterior of the shoes they appear to have a mostly subdued design, featuring a tonal black upper made up from nylon and leather. When you slide you’re feet into the comforts of the Gel Lyte III though you’ll see where the styling comes in to make this pair truly unique and a collectible for all Gel Lyte fanatics. A orange and black leopard print covers both of the insoles with Far East Tokyo Ueno printed in white lettering with mita sneakers beneath it.
Watch for this new mita x Asics Gel Lyte III collaboration to release in the coming months and follow the jump to take a look at the stylized insoles.
