ASICS GEL-GLIDELYTE III
In celebration of the GEL-LYTE™ III model's 30th anniversary, ASICS has invited Kiko Kostadinov to collaborate on a special edition hybrid model, The GEL-GLIDELYTE™ III.
The GEL-GLIDELYTE™ III model is an embodiment of ASICS technology and craftsmanship, merging two of their most iconic silhouettes; The GEL-LYTE™ III and the GLIDERIDE™ models – famed for saving runners energy via its GUIDESOLE™ technology present within the curved sole. This shape minimises lower leg movement through each stride, giving the runner a feeling of seamless coasting.
The upper design language is inspired by the GEL-LYTE™ III shoe with the split tongue and the asymmetric toe window near the front of the model. A PU part, inspired by the GEL-NIMBUS™ 5 model, runs across the upper with a back counter construction of overlaying mesh, reminiscent of the GEL-HOCKEY TYPHOON 2 model. The GUIDESOLE™ technology rounds off the design elements of the sneaker, providing an increased feeling of comfort, stability and a cushioned ride for the wearer.
