The Asics Gel-Lyte 3 ‘Japanese Denim’ is essentially a state of the union for streetwear. The current trend is moving towards the cut and sew lane, with a focus on quality. These Gel-Lytes capture the essence of said trend to the T. Denimheads will appreciate the use of high quality Japanese denim (home of some of the greatest selvedge denim mills), and streetwear heads from any era will give Internet daps for the use of camo. Consider the Gel-Lytes a starter kit for those looking to upgrade the wardrobe. At a retail price of $120, they’re a Fieg-ish shoe, without the Fieg-ish price. Gotta love it.
The Asics Gel-Lyte 3 ‘Japanese Denim’ releases April 10-11 at limited Asics accounts nationwide.
