After getting an early preview, we’ve now got a full look at the latest installment of BAIT and ASICS “Basics Model” program. Moving away from the military inspirations of the two prior shoes, the design of the Gel Lyte III “Basics Model-003 Nippon Blues” draws inspiration from Japanese tradition and culture. The upper features Japanese indigo Kasuri textile paired with rugged, navy nailhead suede, and red accents and laces. In a subtle nod to ASICS’ place in footwear culture to the West, the footbed has been finished with classic hickory denim. If you haven’t done so yet, head to BAIT now to register for your chance to purchase these and the first two models. For those of you looking to score all three, there is a limited run of three-packs available too.
