Asics Tiger teams up with J. Crew for the 3rd time to create two beautiful premium Gel Lyte III’s, which are available now online at J. Crew and priced at 130$.
Yet again a very nice pack by J. Crew, who never seems to get it wrong with their choice of colors and materials.
Asics and J. Crew decided to use the same materials on both pairs. The collabs feature dusty suede all over the upper with perforation on the side panels and toe box. They also added french terry linings to both runners and two toned laces.
The “Dirty Roof” combines two tones of brown throughout the upper with yellow details on the eyelets, toe and heel. The black stripes and white tongue give the ending touch to this nice pair that just comes perfect for the autumn.
The second pair is called “Tin Roof” and consists of an off white and grey upper with navy tiger stripes and lining. A Gel Lyte III with a very clean cw, premium materials and finished by a gum outsole, what a beauty of a runner.
Personally I think once again J. Crew has done a smooth job! They never seem to fail with their simple but outstanding designs. Two very well executed pairs with nice color ways for the upcoming fall season. Even if both pairs are well executed and I’m still a bit undecided which one to choose, I might go with the “Tin Roof” because of the simplicity of the colors and the gum outsole.
Unfortunately the pairs will only be available at J. Crew and won’t be releasing at other retailers worldwide!
Which of both pairs is your favorite? Let me know in the comment section!
