A definite stand-out from Asics this season, the Japanese footwear giants have reworked the Gel-Lyte EVO silhouette with a bit of inspiration from the 12th century Japanese Samurai O-Yoroi armour.
The Gel-Lyte EVO gives a contemporary update to the classic Gel-Lyte III silhouette, with modern materials and a sleek re-design, while still maintaining the classic makeup of the popular running style. The EVO also sees a new 4-piece tooling applied in it’s renovation, alongside a Dual-Density midsole. For the ‘Samurai’ pack, the EVO’s seamless upper has been reworked with a diamond patterned, engineered TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) material to give an armoured effect. Arriving in four clean colour options, each pair features tonal lacing, speckled accents on the sole unit and liga suede on the iconic split-tongue.
Both lightweight and breathable, the Asics Gel-Lyte Evo supports free movement of the foot. Not only a sleek and highly wearable style, you will struggle to find a more comfortable trainer on the market.
