The third and final installment of the BAIT x Asics Gel Lyte III series takes hold of the strong Japanese roots behind the Gel Lyte III. Switching directions from the first two military inspired designs, the “Nippon Blues” is a step back to pay homage to Asics. Inspired by Japanese culture and tradition, the Nippon Blues utilizes an indigo kasuri textile imported from Japan to adorn the upper. Maintaining the functionality of the designs in this three-shoe series, a durable deep navy, nailhead suede reinforces the Gel-Lyte III to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. The Asics form stripe has been modified for a clean simplistic design, alongside red accents to complete the Nippon Blues motif. Hickory Denim lines the footbed as a nod to exemplify the western influence and relationship Asics has with BAIT.
Look for the BAIT x Asics GEL-Lyte III “Nippon Blues” to launch this Saturday, May 17th at 12am midnight EDT online at PackerShoes.com and at 12pm noon in-store.
