In the annals of the ASICS archive, Afew’s GEL-Lyte III ‘Koi’ stands out as one of, if not the, most beloved releases to carry the tiger stripes. Now, the brand is taking the colourway GR, applying it to the HYPERGEL-Lyte.
The updated GEL-Lyte sports the familiar red, black and white combo with the HYPER’s tooling bringing modern flair. The collar has been streamlined, mesh applied to the midfoot, and TPU beads added to the GEL sole for extra bounce.
You may not want to fork out four figures for the OG, but these are pretty close. Pick them up at ASICS stockists worldwide now.
