It isn’t just Nike that can do veg-tan. Now, two classics — the Gel-Lyte III and Gel-Respector — are lathered in luxurious leathers.This isn’t Asics’ first Veg-Tan pack (click here for one of them), but it is veg-tan proper. Sitting atop gum outsoles and accented with white, this pack does the veg-tan aesthetic differently by flaunting two-toned looks.
The material quality and craftsmanship of Asics is almost always fantastic. Thus, the silhouettes in this latest veg-tan pack will carry elevated price tags due to their gorgeous leather uppers. While these haven’t yet popped up at Stateside retailers, overseas retailers like Titolo and Hanon will be stocking these at the end of the week — February 9 and February 10, respectively. Both the Gel-Lyte III and Gel-Respector will be available at Hanon for £159.00 (approx. $200 USD). The prices, in USD, are much higher at Titolo. If we spot these at Stateside retailers we’ll update you.
