Design:

The Asics Gel-Lyte III “Tiger Snake” begins with a base of light brown cowhide leather, accented by pinkish-orange used on the eyelets, mudguard, and on the medial logoing. The midsole and heel counter are black with a speckling of the same pinkish-orange, which is also repeated on the outsole for a finishing touch. The GEL-Lyte III logoing is done in gold that pops off the black heel counter.

The shoe comes with a custom box, pictured below, which features an illustrated graphic printed with fluoro ink infused with real tiger snake venom.
