Sneaker Diversity – Asics Gel Lyte III “Triple Black”


Throughout this year Nike has been giving their sneakers a beautiful make over with the Triple Black touch. Like most sneakerheads the first thing we do is start to fantasize about what various sneakers outside the Nike catalogue would look like if they were ever get this wonderful make over as well. While doing my daily research on what is coming out on the sneaker market I got one of the best surprises that I could possibly ask for…


Check out he Asics Gel Lyte III – Triple Black…thank the LORD! For any of you that know anything about Asics they are probably one of the most comfortable sneakers on the market, especially with their Gel collection. They are also some of the most eye catching with their signature slit down the middle of the tongue of the sneaker. Due to the fact that a lot of us are so conditioned to see the Nike swoosh on everyone’s feet these days it becomes rare that we see something outside of the Nike scope that REALLY makes us get excited.


If you have not done yourself the huge favour of owning a pair of Asics I STRONGLY suggest you do so! These sneakers will have you question why you would punish your feet just to have sneakers for the sake of having them. Just to give you some background on why I feel so strongly about the comfort factor of these kicks…I wore a pair of Asics Gel Lyte IIIs for the first time in Las Vegas for a WHOLE day walking up and down the strip in 118 degree heat! I had many complaints…but pain in my feet was NOT one of them! Since then I have given the Asics Gel Lyte IIIs my seal of a approval for being one of the most comfortable on the market.


I have said it many times before that if you consider yourself to be a serious sneakerhead you MUST have a nice pair of ALL BLACK kicks…not any sneaker though…something that will make people snap their necks to see what you have on. This sneaker will do it! Especially seeing that Nike took a huge chunk of the market with their Triple Black revolution this year. The Asics Gel Lyte III  – Triple Black should be that sneaker for you. I’ve already started looking for my pair because if I find them I will more than likely buy 2!
