Asics Needs to Chill with These $500 Gel Lyte III's
Are these made of out genuine dinosaur-hide? If not, then what the hell is Asics thinking trying to charge $500 for a 'natural premium leather' Gel Lyte III. The folks at Hender Scheme have been shaking up the internet with their high quality replicas of sneakers such as the Jordan 4, but I didn't think they'd influence the major brands to follow suit. I love the GL3 because it's comfortable and wraps around your foot nicely, but I also learned my lesson from Ronnie Fieg's Grand Opening pack - leather toes and leather sockliners are the worst combo for your feet. Reportedly, the "Natural Leather" Asics Gel Lyte III will be limited to 300 pairs. Stick with TSG for a release date, I guess.
