asics Gel Lyte III ‘Yin Yangs’

For Spring/Summer 2012, asics release this double pack of Gel Lyte III’s nicknamed the ‘Yin Yangs’ due to their monochrome simplicity.

It’s quite a self explanatory idea really; one shoe is black, one is white. Touches of each counter-colour are used sparingly on each shoe, making for a simple and classic looking Gel Lyte III. For a shoe that is often drowned in neon colours, unless as a collaborative effort, it’s nice to see asics embracing the simpler things for this drop. To be completely honest, it would have been cool to see each shoe as an entire wash-out and black-out, using nothing but one colour for each.

Simple and effective, with suede, leather and mesh in the mix, this pack kinda does what it says on the tin.

Both pairs are available now from Hanon for £79.96 each.
