The GL3 was introduced originally in 1989 and was actually made engineered with runners in mind ; what separated this model from any other running shoes at the time was the split tongue and the gel cushioning. But the GL3 has since made its way unto to lifestyle scene, and has become the ultimate silhouette for several collaborative projects, the latest being the Asics x Woei Gel-Lyte III 3.
The shoes were birthed out of a joint work between Asics and Rotterdam’s sneaker store WOEI to celebrate their 10th anniversary. Several elements on the shoes were inspired by WOEI’s love for vintage nylon and the 80’s cassics look. The shoes feature a nylon upper reminiscent of WOEI’s love for vintage and the 80’s classic look. Additional details include the suede overlays on the panels and eyestay, 3M reflective features all throughout. Several shades of grey and soft pink will make up the entire shoe. Asics branding will occupy the conventional spots on the shoe ( heel, panel and midsole) and WOEI’s own logo will adorn the spit tongue.
