One of the many things that sets ASICS apart form other sneaker companies is its pension for bold and bright designs; yet it appears they have taken a bit of a break from that direction with its ASICS GEL-Lyte III 'Japanese Textiles' edition. With a denim and white polkadot upper and a complemented white sole, the shoe is full of personality -- but just in a much more subdued way.
The ASICS GEL-Lyte III Japanese Textiles shoe pays tribute to the company's longstanding Japanese roots. It is made out of premium selvedge Okayama denim that’s been dyed with a dark indigo wash. The fabric "signifies the rebirth of classic workwear styles that became so prominent in the ’40s and ’50s," writes Hypebeast.
