asics Gel Lyte Speed OG (Black/Purple)

asics have dug into their archive and pulled out this OG Gel Lyte Speed from ’89, re-releasing it in limited numbers.

There’s nothing quite as beautiful as a well executed OG running shoe re-release, if you are a running shoe geek like myself that is. This Gel Lyte Speed is no exception to this and is sure to make any asics fan drool in awe. The genius ‘anti-crooked’ split tongue of the Gel Lyte’s pops in purple against the black upper. A white midsole with Purple speckling is enough to make a grown man cry in joy and the grey/purple/black outsole is a work of art.

Possibly the greatest colourway I’ve seen for this shoe and a classic colourway also. It’s a win/win piece of footwear.

The asics Gel Lyte Speed OG is available from Hanon now for £85, but don’t sleep as they haven’t made a great deal of these.
