I never got into Asics, but I picked up a Gel Trainer and loved the fit, now I appreciate the styling a lot more... nice collection

The Colette is probably my favorite colorway ever made of the GL III, right up there with the curry A.R.C.s, and I've bought up every pair of the latter ina size 13 that I've come across. Even though Europe still gets the lion's share of good GL III and GT II releases, at least the future is looking alittle brighter for US releases with the two Runovation packs. ucasta, nice stuff as well. Makes me wish that I livedcloser to a decent Footlocker, or at least one that has competent employees who can look up inventory and place orders from other stores.

I'll post pics of my stuff later, but it's good to see some Asics love on NT.

Asics are actually the best running shoes. Aesthetically I have always preferred Nikes, but once I started using Asics for running..

not much above retail for alifes. david z's arent worth more than 70. you can cop the og purple cway for cheaper, and its better

^ The selection in the US is weak, at best.

Sure, we get a decent collab every once in awhile (Proper, ARC, one out of every five DavidZ releases), but the vast majority of recent GRs are just Gel LyteIIIs in clownish colorways and/or patent leather that are sold only at "select" Footlockers. ucasta has, bya wide margin, the two best of those recent releases. There's one other white/black colorway that showed promise, but... patent leather on the toe. I wasexcited for the Runovation Pack until I saw the materials used. Reptile prints and patent leather? No thanks.

So, while it's true that the US market is getting more retro Asics releases than in the past, I'll take quality over quantity any day.

the gel lyte IIIs were pretty much only available at higher volume footlockers located in big cities, if you are in the Boston area the Cambridgeside Galleriastill has majority of the releases still left there. If you want some sku #s i have 5 pairs here right now, and they can still be stock located

They're not royal blue to me, they're kind of in between royal and carolina if you ask me.

Royal blue is more vibrant and bright, the blue on these is more dull.

A very nice GR colorway though. I don't get how they can put these out with all of the other clashing colorways I've seen.
