ASICS Gel Lyte III “Crane & Turtle” Pack*~

Always a fixture in seasonal drops from ASICS, the running centric Gel Lyte III again finds placement among the brand’s archival releases for the new year. The forthcoming ASICS Gel Lyte III “Crane & Turtle” Pack sees a pair of split tongue gems draw inspiration from a rather unusual source. An elder Japanese proverb that reads, “Tsuru sen-nen, kame man-nen” translates to “Crane lives for 1,000 years; Turtle lives for 10,000 years.” With clear ties to a life lived in longevity, health emerges as a dominate theme as the shoes are crafted in large part with running and physical health in mind. Thus, the pack highlights a vibrant Red/Grey pair alongside an iteration in tonal green and a mustard-like hue.
