The Asics Gel Respector is one of the models to be the odd man out when it comes to what Asics focuses on. With the Gel Lyte 3, 5 and Gel Saga getting most of the love, the Gel Respector is left on the outside looking in. That is until now. Let’s take a look at the return of the Asics Gel Respector and what it has to offer.

Considered to be one of Asics classic silhouettes, The Asics Gel Respector returns in its original colorway. It features a normal construction up top, coming in a grey and white upper, the Respector is offset with hits of black and Aster Purple found on the midsole and neoprene side panels. Asics branding on the tongue and heel also come in the aforementioned Aster Purple, while subtle hits of yellow are seen on the outline branding on the side panels. How would you rank this Asics model to the ones you’re used to seeing? If you’re diggn’ it you can now get a pair today at select Asics retailers.
