The ASICS Tiger retro offerings will get even deeper this year with the introduction of the Asics Gel Respector.
The 90s runner is chunkier than most of the brand's ancient running silhouettes, thanks in part to the bulky clip around the heel that acts as a stabilizer. The traction pattern here should be familiar to Asics heads, as it's the same from the prolific Gel Lyte III. Included in the shoe's upcoming retro cycle will be the standard suede/mesh mixtures as well as some leather and reflective-infused pairs.
Look for the Asics Gel Respector to make its debut in the fall of 2015 for $120.
