Asics’ appreciation for the outdoors has been emphasized on a number of their recent releases, namely a pair of sustainably produced GEl-Lyte IIIs. Now, the Japanese brand is paying homage to outside again with the “Olive Canvas” pack, available now.

2020 was the thirtieth-anniversary of Asics’ GEL-Lyte III running shoe, a revolutionary design backed by decades of Japanese sports research and craftsmanship. The brand celebrated via a rehashing of the original GEL-Lyte III, adjusting the shape and fit of the modern-day version to better reflect the OG pairs from 1990. Now, Asics continues to fill out their lineup of the GLIII with special new colorways, like this week’s release of the “Olive Canvas” pack, highlighting the vintage runner in two matching green-based color schemes. Both styles begin with the namesake olive green canvas for the base layer, while they differ in the color of suede overlays used, one opting for brighter greens and tans, while other is much darker featuring black panelling.


Asics’ latest colorways of the legendary GEL-Lyte III, dressed in matching olive canvas colorways, released quietly last week and are still available directly from the Japanese brand’s website. The twin olive green color schemes come with an unusual price tag of $130. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Asics release news.
