asics Gel-Lyte V
20 years after its debut, Asics re-released the Gel Lyte V for the first time in 2013, and following the success of the Gel Lyte III in the lifestyle sector, the GL V immediately made a huge impact. The first re-issue in the original colorways and with its mono sockliner was soon out of stock across the globe. It was not long before collaborations surfaced, and collaboration partners around the world breathed entirely new life into the former performance shoe. With their very own ideas as to which new colorway could work with this unique silhouette, they delivered countless new Gel-Lyte V releases. In contrast with the original 1990s edition having uppers made almost exclusively of synthetic materials, the Gel Lyte V of today is quite likely to be sold in an all-suede rendition, such as in the collab with Concepts or with Ronnie Fieg. Regardless of whether the sneaker is a general release or a limited collector’s item, the Gel Lyte V will always impress with its unique paneling and superior comfort.
