Continuing to celebrate the victory of the Springboks winning the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, ASICS is releasing a Limited Edition ‘ASICS Springbok GEL-LYTE III‘ featuring the iconic green-and-gold colourway of the Bokke jersey.
The shoes feature the iconic green-and-gold colourway of the Springbok jersey with detailed embroidery accents. Originally released in 1987, the latest evolution of this classic sneaker gives today’s wearer the commemorative design with uncompromising comfort and bounce that stays bouncier for longer.
The midsole integrates foam and GEL™ technologies, previously fused on ASICS performance footwear designed for running and fitness. This addition offers cushioning and rebound, for all-day comfort and a lightweight ride, that wearers would associate with ASICS’ superior cushioning system.
Meanwhile, the beautiful, iconic design elements of the original GEL-LYTE™ model remain. The traditional tongue and collar, along with the conventional lacing system, fit the current trend for nostalgic sneaker style.
The ASICS Springbok GEL-LYTE III will be available to purchase from Wednesday, 01 July 2020 at:
- ASICS (Canal Walk and Mall of Africa)
- Sportsmans Warehouse
- SA Rugby Shop
The retail price is set at R1800.
