UPDATE: When it comes to sneakers, you don't always have the chance to 'try before you buy' – especially when copping online – but thanks to Titolo we have the opportunity to peep these 'Veg Tan' GEL-Lyte IIIs on foot. If you lucked out on the Japanese-made 'Vegetable Tanned Leather' GEL-Lyte IIIs when they dropped in 2015 – and with just 255 pairs to go around, chance are high that you did – then these are certainly a worthy substitute to ease your 'Veg Tan' needs.
Cop your pair from February 10 through Titolo.
If there's on thing ASICS know it's quality. Releases like the Selvedge Denim pack and 'Indian Ink' IIIs have always allowed them to stand out from the crowd, but their latest 'Veg Tan' offerings have further upped the ante. Following its fraternal GEL-Respector, this Veg Tan GEL-Lyte III comes wrapped in hide so premium you probably wouldn't think twice if someone told you it was a custom. A fleshy pink leather hugs the midsole, and a smooth caramel leather has been expertly grafted together on the Tiger Striped upper. White laces and midsole then balance the colourway, rounding out a truly remarkable build.
The 'Veg Tan' ASICS GEL-Lyte III will be available on February 18 from select ASICS retailers.
