ASICS Gives the Gel-Lyte III OG a “Wisteria” Makeover

While trends often shift the number of models released from year to year, ASICS and the Gel-Lyte III have remained consistent. The iconic style is still used as a canvas for collaborations like this year’s Sneaker Freaker x atmos and Sneaker Politics releases.


ASICS is now ready to release a “Wisteria” inspired Gel-Lyte III OG. ASICS has designed this pair to depict the beautiful color palette of the Wisteria tree, which represents long life and immortality.

The plant, which has Japanese roots, may live for more than 100 years and is symbolic of everlasting wisdom in Japan. The upper of this Gel-Lyte III OG is made up of various suedes that begin in gray and are enhanced by thematic colors of lilac and cream. Signature GEL technology is included in the midsole of the Gel-Lyte III, giving comfort with each step.


ASICS has not yet confirmed a release date for the Gel-Lyte III OG “Wisteria,” however it will be available shortly via ASICS and select retailers for $130 USD.
