For the most part, Asics tends to keep things subtle when it comes to the colorways they use on their lifestyle models. They would rather put the focus on the quality and craftsmanship of their shoes instead of trying to wow the crowd with a flashy appearance. This Fall/Winter season though, it appears that Asics is in some sort of spontaneous mood as two of their most beloved models are set to get the liquid metal treatment!
The Asics Gel Lyte 3 and Asics Gel Lyte 5 will take part in what is being called the “Liquid Metal” pack consisting of to monochromatic liquid metal looks on the fan-favorite models. The Asics Gel Lyte 3 will come in a silver liquid metal upper offset by the black hits noted on the branding and lining of the shoe. The Gel Lyte 5 opts to come in a flashy gold liquid metal upper which is also offset by the black placed on the branding and lining. Both shoes will also come with a white midsole that’s paired up with a grey outsole. It is said that both colorways are set to release overseas beginning October 30th, so a stateside release is expected soon thereafter.
I like when Asics steps outside their comfort zone. I think they’ve gathered a strong enough fan base to be able to take risks and think outside the box. I’m looking forward to this release.
