ASICS Gel Lyte III x BAIT "Nippon Blue"
Part of the BASICS program, definitely the one that uniquely stood out.
ASICS and BAIT teamed up last year for a project dubbed as "BASICS". Three-pack of Gel Lyte III from the said project are uniquely different from each other but one really stood out, the "Nippon Blue".
Unlike the two GL3 that features camouflage print, this one right here bumped off the military look and put on a concept that most saw as a nod to ASICS' Japanese roots and heritage.
Aside from a durable nailhead suede (same with the other two in the series), the Nippon Blue sports a patterned indigo kasuri textile from Japan, red accents, and a hickory denim insole that pretty much sums up the cultural influences behind the shoe.
I had some free time again and decided to do some impromptu shots before breaking them out. On feet shots soon!
For now, enjoy the set below.
