mita X ASICS Gel Lyte III (Far East)
UPDATE: That's more like it – on-foots for the win! Check the images thanks to Wish ATL, who will also be stocking pairs come the drop date.
With 2015 marking the Gel Lyte III 25th anniversary, Mita Sneakers has done what they do best – produce a seriously tricked-out runner with a bucket-load of intricate detailing! Vivid blue suede and matte navy nubuck from the foundation, while a custom pull-tab on the heel adds a unique colour pop. White contrast stitching, quilted collars, rope laces and rubber piping around the toe box are other Mita flourishes, but it's the return of the over-sized rubberised midfoot-mesh that is the real highlight here for the GL3 aficionados. Because too much is never enough, a 'Far East' inscription rests inside the translucent heel wedge. Slated for a January 24 release, look to find them at stockists including Oneness – and Mita of course!
