We all know about Asics biggest lifestyle models such as the Gel Lyte 3 and Gel Lyte 5, but what ever happened to the Gel Lyte 4, and where is it? Does it exist? Well an interesting fact about the Asics Gel Respector happens to be that it released after the Gel Lyte 3 but before the Gel Lyte 5. Could the Gel Respector be the Gel Lyte 4? Hmmm..Anyways, let’s take a look at the “Triple Black” version of the Asics Gel Respector.

Coming in an all-black upper, the Gel Respector’s upper appears to be made completely out of suede, with only minimal hits of leather spotted on the Asics branding on the side panels of the shoes. A black tonal sole unit continues the all-black theme, while the rest of the hits/accents and branding also happen come in a black hue. What do you think of this version of the Gel Lyte Respector. Cop or drop?

Author’s Take

It’s a clean silhouette that I feel Asics should take advantage of much more often than they have in the past. With that being said, I’m looking forward to more colorways of the Respector
