Asics Gel Blade 3 Squash Shoes

The Asics Gel Blade 3 squash shoes are the latest iteration of the Asics Gel Blade series that are much-loved by squash players. (For the women’s version, see Asics Gel Blade 3 W.)

Update: the latest version of these is the Asics Gel Blade 4.

Here’s LJ Anjema wearing the neon green version of these shoes. I guess LJ just went out and bought every color of this shoe, just in case.

Thanks to Tom for the tip!

Looks like there’s also an orange-flavored version, which I haven’t been able to find for sale anywhere:
