Forget camo and striped overlays, the new Asics Gel Lyte III Aztec Pack is the new pattern of the season. The 1989 trainer gets a new season update, and it’s possibly one of the sleekest pairs of kicks you’ll see this year.
The earthy-toned pack features a drop of both the Gel Lyte III and Gel-Epirus, the rich triangular pattern runs through both of the designs giving a clean look to both trainers. This new colourway is part of Asics shift from running company to sneakerhead favourites, with such a promising start we are excited to see what is next with the collection. We take a detailed look at the Gel Lyte III drop before the drop date.

The Gel Lyte III was originally designed in 1989 and has been released within different collaborations and colourways over the past decade. The shoe soon became a classic silhouette and featured some of the most innovative details to date, including their split tongue which is a novel invention that eliminated the problem of having the tongue slip down the side of the shoe.
