Asics will take a page out of Hender Scheme’s book. We introduce you to the Asics Gel Lyte III Natural Leather Made in Japan. Craftsmanship and premium materials are included, but comes with a bigger price tag.
According to the source, who goes by the name GucciP_MrLeaker on Twitter has stated this pair of Asics Gel Lyte III are manufactured in Japan. He goes on to say the shoes are limited to 300 pairs and is an Asia exclusive. The most shocking part is the retail price, which is set at $500. A lot more than we are use to with Asics.
In addition to how limited the GL3 is, they are constructed with natural leather through the uppers, again something we traditional don’t see with Asics. Leather is also used on the liner, giving them the absolute luxury feel. Drifting down, they also feature a white midsole and gum outsole. One of the shoes highlights is the uppers will have a patina affect which is unique to the wearer.
At this time, a release date for the ‘Made in Japan’ Natural Leather Asics Gel Lyte III has yet to leak, but stay tuned as we continue to monitor this pair.
