UPDATE: Euro heads if you're chasing and haven't had any luck yet , these have just turned up at Sneakernstuff.
ASICS have clocked a stellar run this first half of the decade, elevating the brand into new heights via some very successful partnerships and bringing their iconic Gel lyte III silhouette to the new wave of sneaker collectors. Recently, they have been weaning off their reliance on collaborations to strengthen up their GR range, but the inspiration from past successes is still apparent, most notably the colour blocked toe technique popular with a number of collaborators. Their upcoming 50/50 Pack that includes the GLIII above and this GLV revolves around colouring up three models in this style, it'll be interesting to see how these GR versions will sell on the strength of ASICS alone. The sneaker masses are as fickle as ever in 2015, but we believe ASICS have established themselves a big enough following to push into the second half of the '10s in strong fashion!
