Model: GEL-Glidelyte III
Key Features: The GEL-Glidelyte III features the split tongue upper of the GEL-Lyte III and the curved sole of the GLIDERIDE. It also has a GEL-NIMBUS 5-inspired PU part running across the upper and overlaying mesh at the heel, a nod to the GEL-HOCKEY TYPHOON 2.
Release Date: November 13
Buy: ASICS.com and select retailers
Editor’s Notes: It turns out that Kiko Kostadinov's GEL-Kiril 2 that released last month wasn't his final collaboration with ASICS. Instead, the two are back together to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the iconic GEL-Lyte III, presenting a new hybrid offspring called the GEL-Glidelyte III.
The GEL-Glidelyte III merges the upper of the GEL-Lyte III with the sole of the GLIDERIDE, a sole that features ASICS' GUIDESOLE technology, which is designed to save runners energy. The curved shape of the sole minimizes lower leg movement, leaving the wearer with a feeling of seamless coasting. Up top, the split tongue design of the GEL-Lyte III draws attention to the upper of the GEL-Glidelyte III.
The Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS GEL-Glidelyte III will be available in two colorways of Red Bud/Fire Brick and Asphalt/High Rise for men and women beginning November 13.
