UPDATE: We're happy to report that these ASICS GEL-Lyte III Mid-Cuts have finally hit stores! The bootie boasting model can be found in 'India Ink' and grey now from Overkill. But get in quick, sizes have already started selling out.
UPDATE: The sky-scraping split tongue ASICS is on the horizon. Part GEL-Lyte III, part GEL-Lyte V and part GEL-Respector, The MT is the next wave of multi-seasonal sneaker. Both colourways are set to drop early October at select ASICS stockists around the world – stay alert, the Tiger is near. In the mean time, take a good look at the new pics up top.
The recognisable split-tongue of the ASICS GEL-Lyte III is anything but waterproof. Up until now if you wanted to pound puddles you’ve either had to steer clear of the split or just suffer the soaked sock. Enter the mid-cut GEL-Lyte III MT, with a collar that extends into a slit protecting bootie, keeping your toes cosy and dry. The MT has been beefed up for the elements with an additionally chunky heel cap – similar to that of a GEL-Respector – and a toothy treaded outsole. The winter warrior is coming in ‘India Ink’ and grey, both with speckled soles, safe for those dreary winter mornings.
The ASICS GEL-Lyte III MT is dropping soon at select stockists, you can keep an eye on asphaltgold for the drop.
