After giving you a closer look at the upcoming Asics Gel Lyte 3 Marble Pack, we keep running with the Gel Lyte 3 but this time in a more festive colorway. February is Black History Month and we see adidas and Nike/Jordan Brand release their annual collections paying homage to the BHM. But another event that takes place in February is Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day lands on February 14th every year and many brands tend to release sneakers to go along with the lovey dovey “unofficial” holiday. Asics did so last year when they released their Valentine’s Day Pack inspired by roses and chocolate featuring the Gel Lyte 5 and Gel Lyte 3. This year they plan on releasing a Valentine’s-themed pack again but this time it comes with two colorways of the Gel Lyte 3, one black and one red. As you can see above, the black pair comes in all suede with leather detailing on the heel and side stripes. The red pair (which has more of a Valentine’s theme) comes with a neoprene, suede and leather construction and has been hit with a bunch of tiny cupid’s arrows on the signature split tongue.
Take a look at both colorways of the Gel Lyte 3 above and look for them to release as select Asics retailers in the next few weeks so you have something to buy for that special sneakerhead in your life.
They should have just made one pair that blended black and red together. The black pair doesn’t really have any Valentine’s Day features to it like the red pair does with the cupid’s arrows. I guess that makes it more wearable. These will both be a pass for me though.
