Asics Gel Lyte V Premium Pack
Soon to be landing at Urban Industry we have two premium reworks of Asics popular Gel Lyte V silhouette, adding modern fabrications and two strong colour ways for SS15.
Originally released in 1993, the shape only resurfaced back in 2013 and was met with a great reception, leading to a spate of notable collaborations and a series of solid colour reworks that would see the shoe become a favourite for sneaker lovers across the globe.
The Gel Lyte V was introduced as the successor to the iconic Gel Lyte III, which saw great success in the early 90’s, and was considered as one of the most technologically advanced runners of its time. The V saw Asics develop the Gel-Lyte line with a lightweight, performance model that had a sleek style and looked great on the foot. It was a great representation of running shoes at the time and soon became a cult favourite. The shoe also included a neoprene sock-liner that was a huge trend in running silhouettes around it’s release as it supported the foot and ankle, giving a snug fit for unrivalled comfort.
The latest iterations of the Gel Lyte V arrive in two colour ways – Blue with Burgundy and a Black with Tan option. The shoes uppers are comprised of mesh and leather with suede detailing. The sock liner remains, as does the signature gel-cushioning system that sits inside the contrasting and slightly speckled midsole. Additional features include embossed branding both on the heel and tongue, the iconic side stripe and the outsole matches the colour of the upper.
