Asics Gel Lyte

by Henrik Buzzi

The first model of Asics Tiger’s classic line up; The Gel-Lyte Series, returns for AW17. The 1987 Gel-Lyte is best known for marking the start of the Asics Tiger era and was one of the first Asics shoes featuring Gel and was originally inspired by the GT-II. The addition of the word “Lyte” to the model’s moniker was down to the fact that it weighed less than a pound, 9.9 ounces to be exact. The revived Gel-Lyte model stays true to the original color combination of black and white with orange accents. Releasing at selected retailers such as Hanon on July 1.
