You can now add another release to the long list of impressive Shoe Palace exclusives of 2020. For this next project Shoe Palace has teamed up with Asics to bring to us a special SMU that honors the 30th Anniversary of a footwear innovator.  

The Asics Gel-Lyte 3 made its debut back in 1990. Designer Shigeyuki Mitsui set out to create a sneaker that utilized the best aspects of fashion and sport with the silhouette. The Asics Gel Lyte XXX takes the Gel-Lyte 3 heritage to new heights with a modern design that utilizes the best materials and technology of today.  

About the Asics Gel-Lyte XXX from ASICS:  

Leaving the iconic split-tongue intact, this shoe revamps the upper construction with primarily no-sew  overlays and an asymmetrical lacing system to help reduce forefoot irritation. Revamped with our FLYTEFOAM® technology in the midsole for an improved cushioning experience, the shoe also  features a pronounced external heel counter that pays homage to the original shape.  Commemoraon, the GEL-LYTE™ XXX sneaker evolves the heritage of the GEL-LYTE™  III offering with excellent performance technology, while preserving its signature features.  

When the opportunity came to Shoe Palace to pay tribute to the GEL-LYTE™ III with an exclusive  silhouette, the SP creative team instantly knew what direction they wanted to go. Mitsui was born in Niigata, a northern prefecture of Japan, and the artist always viewed the The GEL-LYTE™ III as the perfect blend of culture and sport.  The shoe merges performance and lifestyle the same way it merges culture and sport. This was accomplished by mixing materials. The color pops make it a sneaker that is perfect for everyday use.  

The Shoe Palace x Asics Gel-Lyte XXX uses the color palette of the Japan FIFA jersey – blue,  white and red. It presents premium materials throughout including suede on its tip and on the  mudguard. The sneaker’s vamp features illusion blue shiny interlock mesh. It utilizes a red felt overlay  and red bar tack stich details. It has a Nexkin split tongue with a matte chrome spoiler with “Japan”  printed on it. There are customizable Velcro patches on the heel that can be swapped for ones that  say either “ASICS” or “93.” The insole graphics feature a tonal flame graphic and a Shoe Palace “93  Shield.”  

The Shoe Palace x Asics Gel-Lyte XXX will release exclusively at select Shoe Palace locations and on shoepalace.com beginning October 16th.
