Release of the Week: Packer Shoes x ASICS GEL-LYTE III “Dirty Buck”

Second in line for the ASICS GEL-LYTE III 25th Anniversary collabs is the Packer Shoes x ASICS GEL-LYTE III “Dirty Buck”, a nod to the classic dress shoe.

To commemorate the ASICS GEL-LYTE III’s 25th Anniversary, the brand is releasing 12 collaborative versions of the sneaker over the course of the year. February’s edition sees New Jersey-based sneaker store Packer Shoes giving the GEL-LYTE III colors that make it resemble the “Dirty Buck” classic dress shoe.

Grey-beige suede covers the upper and is matched by a salmon red midsole. Tan-colored trimming is found on the white split-tongue and other parts of the shoe, with Packer Shoes’ branding present on the tongue, lateral heels and insole.

The Packer Shoes x ASICS GEL-LYTE III “Dirty Buck” is set to drop on February 28th and will be available at select ASICS retailers.
