Originally released in 1989, the Asics GEL-Lyte III is known for its classic style and innovative advancements. The most notable design feature of the GEL-Lyte III is their "split tongue" that eliminates the problem of the tongue sliding during long distance runs. Plus, they also have a nylon upper with synthetic overlays, GEL cushioned sole, padded tongue/collar, and reflective accents.
Overall Rating for Asics GEL-Lyte III
If you are concerned about the split tongues- don't be. One of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn, for whatever purpose.
