ASICS Tiger has given two of its iconic silhouettes, the GEL-Lyte III and the GEL-Respector, a premium refit, draping them in luxury vegetable-tanned leather. The GEL-Lyte III sports a predominantly red upper with a combination of pig suede and woven mesh. The veg-tan leather is applied to the Tiger stripes, heels and tongue labels. Meanwhile, the GEL-RESPECTOR features the same materials, but instead boasts a matte black upper. Branding is kept discreet, with embossed and printed logos on the tongue, heel and sides of each model. Both pairs of the retro runners sit on clean and contrasting off-white midsoles, with the ever popular choice of gum outsoles completing the look. The new veg-tan GEL-Lyte III and GEL-Respector will be available for $160 each from select retailers on August 13.
