UPDATE: Second chances are rare, but third chances? Now those are truly unheard of! If you missed out when these dropped at atmos back in December then it looks like you are in luck. These will be dropping at selected global ASICS stockists, including Sneaker Politics, on January 23rd. This is your last chance, so don't squander it!
Second chances don't come around often for ASICS collectors. After 15 years of keeping it on lock in the Land of the Rising Sun, the sneaker kingpins over at atmos have chosen to reflect back on the past and resurrect their fiendishly sought-after black and gold Gel Lyte III from 2011 for a new lease on life in the form of a Gel Lyte V. With a black base of mesh, suede and leather, drippings of gold details and a speckled midsole, these are just oozing with sophistication. If you're one of the many ravenous ASICS collectors that have been feverishly scouring the 'Bay for a pair of the elusive GL3s, this is an opportunity not to be squandered! These are officially dropping December 19 but atmos will be kicking off a pre-sale on December 5th midnight (Tokyo local time).
