The Asics Gel Lyte III is a crowd pleaser in general so whenever a little extra spice is added to the mix it's almost like a cheat code of sorts. This latest pair adds bits of bandana to the ankle collar to create an instant smash hit.

The shoe pops up with a red suede upper that is trimmed in tonal canvas along it's toe box. With hits of white and black also involved the color blocking perfectly imitates the ankle collar's bandana print.

What's the first thing that you thought of when you saw this pair? Tupac Shakur spitting at the camera in his Red Wings jersey?
