Ever since ASICS resurrected the GEL-Respector with the OG “Aster Purple” colorway last summer, the old 1991 silhouette has been the canvas for some of the brand’s best drops, donning all-white and “Triple Black” motifs before acting as the collaborative canvas for team-ups with the likes of Concepts, Patta and 24 Kilates. With all due respect to those aforementioned designs, however, this summer’s “LT” pack might be the best GEL-Respector drop yet. Marked by luxurious suede construction, the kicks come in two-toned combos of grey/beige and black/grey, each employing matching rope laces along with corresponding beige and grey sole units.

ASICS fans can find both pairs from spots like 43einhalb when they drop June 17.
