ASICS Vegetan Pack: premium approach to the iconic models
Release of the Japanese company made with inlays of vegetable tanned leather
ASICS keeps on following the trends and is back with two premium takes on some of the brand’s most iconic retro running models. Those models are ASICS Gel-Lyte III and ASICS Gel-Respector — both serve as the perfect canvas for the luxurious materials found in the new ASICS Vegetan Pack, a collection that utilizes the trend of vegetable tanned leather for a subtle yet effective lifestyle release. Let’s look into this release in detail.
The oldest way of chamoising known to man is vegetable method. This method supposes working with leather using natural acids. Those acids are extracted from oak or nut-tree timbers with addition of some plants’ extracts. That’s where the name of the leather-transformation method comes from as well as the name of the pack — Vegetan. To sum up, we may say that such type of leather is completely natural and is remarkable for its premium quality.
GEL-Lyte III and GEL-Respector
As it was said earlier, the release consists of two models. The first one is Gel-Lyte III. It returns in a red pigskin suede upper paired with just the right amount of woven mesh textiles for an effective contrast. The vegetable tanned leather is applied to the Tiger Stripes on the side panel with matching accents on the heel and tongue. The second model is GEL-Respector and it features the exact same materials but dressed in black. Branding is kept discreet, with tonal embossed and printed logos on the tongue, heel and lateral side of each model. Both pairs sit on clean and contrasting Slight White midsoles, with the ever popular paddy GEL outsoles that provide shock absorption and protection.
