Though not as heralded as the likes of its Gel Lyte III and Gel Saga counterparts, the Gel Lyte V from ASICS represents an advancement over both thanks in part to an evolution in the brand’s signature GEL cushioning as well as the silhouette’s use of a foot-hugging inner sleeve. Now, the Japanese footwear label is set to resurrect the classic 1993 release with the upcoming return of the ASICS Gel Lyte V OG. Decked out in a combination of white mesh and matching suede, the kicks sport contrasting black branding while the shoe’s minty green and deep purple accents stay true to the zeitgeist of early ’90s running aesthetics. A surefire hit, the retro ASICS Gel Lyte V OG is due out this fall.
