Created by Shigeyuki Mitsui back in 1990, the GEL-LYTE III broke the mould of conventional shoe design. At a time when high performance shoes lacked style, Mitsui-san wanted to create “the ultimate performance running shoe with the highest level of technology and function,” but one that was “visually pleasing unlike existing shoes at the time.”

The features – such as the unorthodox, yet functional split tongue, which allows for better fit, and a low to high-density midsole, that offers a better distribution of pressure and weight for its wearer – made the GEL-LYTE III unique. Originally created as a runner, the GEL-LYTE III has moved beyond the track and onto the streets.

Embraced as an everyday staple, it has become one of the best-loved shoes in the industry. The GEL-LYTE III is a time-honoured piece of footwear that easily straddles the line between functionality and innovation.

To celebrate the anniversary of the GEL-LYTE III, ASICS and size? have teamed up to create a GEL-LYTE III inspired by a traditional 25th anniversary gift: Tsavorite.

‘Tsavorite’ – [tsah-vuh-rahyt]

The tsavorite is described as a gem that combines beauty, durability and rarity. Today the tsavorite remains one of the last truly ‘wild’ gems; no treatments or synthetics are known to exist.

Although the tsavorite has qualities which make it an extremely popular gemstone, it lacks adequate supply which has led to the gem becoming extremely rare.

A micro-perforated reflective 3M dominates the upper, representing the purity of the ring whilst the green leather sockliner subtly ties into the gemstone.

The size? x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III ‘Tsavorite’ releases  Friday 6th March, 2015 at 8:00am.  They will be priced at £115 in UK sizes 4 – 13
