Asics Gel Lyte V Shoes
The unquestionable success of GL III motivated the Japanese brand to present their new model in 1993.
By proposing the name Asics Gel Lyte V, the company cleverly omitted number 4, as in the Japanese culture it is associated with death.
This new model may surely be described as one of the best and the most popular classic lifestyle shoes in the world. However, before gaining this prestigious status, Gel Lyte V literally had to go a long way. As it was originally meant for running, it was quickly claimed to me one of the best shoes for professionals created in the 90s. Its successful career on running tracks ensured its position on the market. For years now, it has been one of the flag models in the catalogues of the classic Asics Tiger collections.
Such elements as the Gel amortisation system (two gel cushions installed in the soft foam rubber of the inner sole) and the neoprene collar (a new solution implemented instead of regular tabs in the majority of running shoes in the 90s) combined with high-quality materials and reliable execution undoubtedly suit the modern, urban style. This assumption seems to be proven by numerous colour variants and collaboration projects with the most popular global boutiques and designers launched for the model. Each year, Asics Gel Lyte V surprises its fans with more and more intriguing colour and material propositions.
