Packer Shoes X ASICS Gel Lyte III (Dirty Buck)
UPDATE: Updated flicks thanks to packer shoes ahead of the official launch. For all the history buffs, check out the tenth image. A black and white glimpse into just how long Packer Shoes has been in the shoe game! Stay tuned for details.
Back in 1990 when LL Cool J's mama was telling him to knock people out, mama ASICS birthed the Gel Lyte III. It was originally designed as a performance runner, however features like its split tongue inspired the inner stunter in many people with zero intention of hitting the track.
Now the Gel Lyte III is 25, ASICS is celebrating with a Packer shoes collaboration from which we now have this 'Dirty Buck'. The colourway appears to have manifolded from the 'dirty buck' coloured, Oxford-style dress shoe that commonly sits on a slightly pink tanned sole. Even though the shoe is styled like the usual 25 year old yo-pro, this shoe keeps it street with 3M accents towards the toe and Packer branding on the rear. Come February 28, you'll be able to buy this Gel Lyte III from retailers like End Clothing, and show up to work in a shoe that adds a touch of trill to office chic.
