The Asics Gel Lyte 3 is a runner that usually keeps things very subtle when it comes to the materials they use. More often times than not, you see them wearing mesh, suede, even leather. But what about a croc skin upper?! That’s exactly what we see here as Asics appears to be trying new things on one of their classic running models.

The Asics Gel Lyte 3 that you see above comes with a premium crocodile texture, that obviously transforms the look and feel of the shoe from what we’re accustomed to seeing. Coming in a Cool Grey hue all over the upper, the shoe is offset by the implementation of the sole white you see on the midsole. So, are you a fan of this new look on the Asics Gel Lyte 3? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

While I do consider myself to be a fan of reptile texture on shoe, I’m not so sure how i feel when it’s put on this particular shoe. Perhaps it’s the tonal look, if there were more color being used I’d probably be digging it more. It’s a pass for me.
