Asics is coming out with three new colorways of the Gel Lyte Speed, the original successor of the Gel Lyte III.
“The GEL-LYTE SPEED was developed in 1989, in Japan and was introduced into the US and Europe in 1991. The introduction was in response to the growing need in the US for a new type of running shoe. The running population there was not only becoming larger but also more diverse. It became apparent that more experienced runners required a lighter shoe than the flagship GEL-LYTE III model. To reduce weight, ASICS decided to strip down the GEL –LYTE III, removing certain technologies while other, more crucial features were retained.” Via Endorsed.
This season the Gel Lyte Speed comes in three strong colorways and they will be released in teh coming weeks. More detailed images follow after the jump.
