The latest kicks from ASICS is a three-way partnership with bal and mita sneakers, featuring the masterpiece of the ASICS Sportstyle range, the GEL-LYTE™ III. This collaboration marks bal‘s (formerly known as balanceweardesign), a streetwear brand based in Tokyo, and mita sneakers‘ 20th anniversary.
bal is all about “high quality, modern, casual wear, and graphics based on urban life.” Taking this concept, they have given the popular GEL-LYTE™ III a makeover, changing the signature split tongue into a zip, and applying gunmetal overlays over a solid black toe box and subtle quilted panels to give it a chic look. The quick lace system with a stopper gives a bright pop of red as an accent on the otherwise dark colour scheme.
Functionality is still a main theme though, with GORE-TEX technology keeping your feet dry in wet conditions, and reflective material enhancing visibility for night-time runs.
Globally launch for the bal x mita sneakers x ASICS GEL-LYTE™ III OG GTX will be on 18th of February. Available at ASICS.com, Above The Clouds, Up There, Laced and USG.
