Back in November, ASICS tapped Transformers for a special futuristic iteration of the GEL-Lyte V silhouette. The Japanese footwear company is back with a new take on the model, this time opting for a more vintage-inspired design — a militaristic “Mantle Green” makeover.

The sneakers are doused in a rich green palette that comes in a mix of durable materials like suede, ballistic nylon and neoprene, contrasted against hints of bright orange hues — a nod to the color of rescue uniform often found in army surplus. The top of the shoe sees “ASICS” branding embroidered at the tongue, complemented by a silver chevron motif at the heel, referencing the “V” in the name of the sneaker silhouette. “GEL-Lyte V” is subtly etched at the upper quarter, just above the white side stripes that are thinly outlined by orange accents. Lush suede fabrics appear along the heel counter as well as the toecap, while sleek ballistic nylon cover the sidewalls and toebox. All of these details sit atop a crisp white midsole, equipped with essential GEL cushioning technology for optimal stability and support.

The ASICS GEL-Lyte V “Mantle Green” is currently available at ASICS’ website for $100 USD.
