Asics shows off its autumnal 'Workwear' look


Say it quietly, but autumn is coming.

There's only one row left on August's calendar page, and we're pretty sure there's a tree turning a worrying shade of brown at the end of the road.

An even bigger hint to the proximity of the cold months ahead has arrived in the shape of ASICS new collection: the autumnal "Workwear" pack.


Featuring a Gel Lyte III, Gel Lyte V and GT-II, each of these seasoned models has been reworked with a layer of perforated suede and embossed leather, with rugged metal eyelets and laces borrowed from a boot. It's a toughened look, contrasting with a summer of lightweight woven fabrics and classic revivals.



A hardy set of skins aside, you'd be mad to take these beauties anywhere near a building site. 

Set to launch on 18 September, you'll be able to pick up the Gel Lyte III for £99, the Gel Lyte V for £109 and the GT-II for £85 from retailers including Hanon.
