Now the brand is adding yet another pair of inky kicks to the fray, this time in the form of a Japanese-made GEL-Sight. Marked by the pairing of premium leather with Japanese denim throughout, the blue and tan kicks see contrasting white stripes and polka dots throughout the denim portions of the upper while the external heel counter, GEL-cushioned midsole and rubber outsole have all been done up in brown.

ASICS Unveils the Premium GEL-Lyte III "Veg-Tan"
In a little over a week, ASICS is dropping what’s not only its best release of the year (so far), but what may be one of its greatest-ever pairs of kicks: a vegetable-tanned rendition of the GEL-Lyte III. One of the most luxurious takes on the retro runner to ever hit shelves, the premium design sports vegetable-tanned leather construction throughout its upper and opts for two different tan hues as contrasting white accents handle everything from the lining and laces to the eyelets and GEL-cushioned midsole. Finally, a gum rubber outsole puts the finishing touches on the slick package.
The GEL-Lyte III “Veg-Tan” will hit select ASICS spots on February 18 for $200 USD.
The Nike LunarCharge Gets the Classic "Neon" Look
The Air Max 90′s “Infrared” look isn’t the only iconic colorway making its way to the LunarCharge. Hot on the heels of the Swoosh’s homage to the 1990 classic is a “Neon” rendition of the comfy Lunar-cushioned kicks. A clear nod to the Air Max 95′s most well-known OG colorway, the design retains its usual neoprene and mesh construction and couples a combination of greyscale hues with “Volt” hits to the Swoosh and heel pull tab.
You can pick these up now from Nike Sportswear spots like HAVEN while supplies last.
Nike Debuts All New Air Max TR 17 in Tan
Nike has unveiled a brand new model for its Air Max family well ahead of Air Max Day. The new Air Max TR 17 takes a lot of design cues from some of the Swoosh’s most popular silhouettes and ACG styles of the ’90s — most notably the woven pattern on the sides and back heel which seem Air Footscape Woven Chukka inspired. Featuring a neoprene sock construction, the leather tan upper sits atop a blacked out Air unit for contrast and the lacing mechanism is designed to loop in and out of the leather weaves along the side panels in similar fashion to the Air Jordan 10.
The new Air Max TR 17 is available now at selection Nike retailers like Lapstone & Hammer for $190 USD.
