Asics Gel Lyte V

  • About

    20 years after its initial release, Asics relaunched the Gel Lyte V for the first time in 2013 and after the success of the Gel Lyte III in the lifestyle segment, the GL V hit like a bomb. In the original colorway and thanks to its monosock liner, the first reissue was soon sold out worldwide. Collaborations were not long in coming and collaboration partners from all over the world breathed new life into the former performance shoe. With their own ideas of what new colorway would work on this unique silhouette, numerous new Gel-Lyte V releases were created. Compared to the original edition from the 90s, where almost exclusively synthetic uppers were used, the Gel Lyte V today also appears in complete suede implementation, such as the Colab with Concepts or Ronnie Fieg. Regardless of whether it's a general release or a limited collector's item, the Gel Lyte V will always impress with its unique paneling and outstanding comfort.
