1. Ronnie Fieg x ASICS Gel-Lyte V ‘Eclipse’

Laces used: Black x Red “Ropes”

Ronnie Fieg kicks off our list and it won’t be the last time either. If you’re looking for inspiration and ideas about lace swaps, he’s your guy. While he works directly with ASICS for larger releases, you can take note from his creations and apply them to your own collection. In his “Eclipse” Gel Lyte 3s, he uses a pair of black and red rope laces to bring an extra layer of depth to the sneaker’s body.

2. Ronnie Fieg x ASICS “Selvedge:

Laces used: Blue x Tan “Ropes”

Ronnie Fieg is a leading creative of our generation who keeps cranking out sneakers that sell out within minutes. He’s created a ton of ASICS Gel Lyte special editions, including this pair of “Selvedge” 3s. Ronnie used a pair of blue thick rope laces to complete his masterpiece.

4. ASICS Gel-Lyte III “Spectra Green”

Laces used: Mint Green “Ropes”

The light green x white rope laces actually come standard with the Spectra Greens, but since we carry an almost identical pair of laces, they made the list. The main difference between the OG Spectra laces and ours is the white in the Spectra is replaced with light grey 3M reflective rope in ours. They look almost identical in the daylight, except the 3M material reflects direct light (similar to how the ASICS sign is reflective the light below).

5. BAIT x ASICS Gel-Lyte III “Ring Pack”

Laces used: Black x Red “Ropes”

I stumbled across this lace swap from Felicity Sneakers on my Flikr feed a few weeks back. The artist took the power blue and red “Ring Pack” release and paired them with some red and black rope laces, a much better fit than the standard blue or red flat laces.

6. ASICS Gel-Lyte III Navy / Orange / White

Laces used: Grey x White “Ropes”

New Zealand based graphics artist and photographer Richard Sue took his pair of Navy x Orange 3’s and paired them up with some grey and white rope laces. I don’t have an image of the original lacing, but these are definitely a nice upgrade.

7. ASICS Gel-Lyte III ‘Daytona’ Customs

Laces used: White “Flat” Laces

Sometimes, there’s nothing cleaner then a pair of clean white laces. Christopher Allen’s “Daytona” customs make this list to show what the power of simple white can do to bring out the vibes from the rest of the sneaker.
