It seems like the Asics Gel Lyte III is the design shoe of choice. Seen in many different colorways and material choices, this leather pack trys to give you something new while still keeping the Asics feel.
Comprised of a brown pair and a black pair; both use leather as the primary material for the upper. In fact, with the exception of a ballistic mesh below the heel tab and below the Asics logo on the midfoot, the entire shoe is leather. Both use an off white stitching to provide a stark contrast to the otherwise dark silhouette and matching black or brown laces are included. The outsole is also off-white and matches the shoes lining. They are not yet available, but you can pre-order a pair now at Crooked Tongues.
