ASICS Tiger Gel-Lyte III

ASICS Tiger Gel-Lyte III

In 1990, the ASICS Gel Lyte III was released for the first time in Japan. Three years earlier, a first model introduced the GEL technology, which provided great cushioning. The Gel-Lyte 3 silhouette has an EVA midsole that includes a new GEL layer and a split tongue for better fixation. The colorways of Shigeyuki Mitsui's OG design were inspired by the hip-hop culture and, more than 25 years later, these sneakers are still an essential of the sneaker culture.

Technological Features

Technological Features

Midsole EVA

EVA is a light, soft and flexible material which can be found in the midsole of retro-running and lifestyle sneakers, and is used as a cushioning system, in order to avoid harsh impacts after every step. The EVA terms stands for the material's technical name, ethylene-vinyl acetate.

Split tongue

The split tongue remains a unmistakable element of the ASICS Tiger Gel Lyte 3 models. This technology improves the adjustment of the shoe to your feet and impedes the movement of the classic tongues while you walk.

GEL Cushioning

ASICS GEL is a technology by the brand ASICS Tiger based on silicone plates placed in the front part and on the back of the shoe. ASICS GEL technology spreads the energy in multiple directions, moderating the pression of each hit and providing stability to the foot.
