UPDATE: FOSS Gallery's first-birthday celebrating colab has produced the finest GEL-Lyte III release of the month. To ensure anyone who wants a pair isn't left empty handed, we've found another strong candidate to cop from. As well as END, you'll be able to find these daring split-tongued runners from Overkill on July 22.
It’s been 30 years since GEL technology first hit the streets and ASICS are celebrating. After delving deep into their catalogue for OG GEL-Lyte retro, they’ve teamed up with Beijing's FOSS Gallery for something extra special. The minds behind the popular streetwear store are celebrating too – their first birthday seemed a fitting reason to colab it up with ASICS on a GEL-Lyte III.
Premium materials seem to be the theme, with wrinkled leather carefully contoured over the runner. Stars have been embossed onto the split tongue, and a shock of black owns the heel. Any complaints of a restrained colourway are quelled by the outsole, which hosts a nebula of blues and purples.
The Foss Gallery x ASICS GEL-Lyte III will be available on July 22 from END.
