Asics has been very deliberate in excavating their archives for retro goodies. The Gel Saga has been back in rotation for a little over a year, which followed the GT-II’s return, whose stage was in turn set by the success of iconic Gel Lyte III. Now we’re about to be blessed with another from that lineage, as we jump from 1990’s beloved GLIII to the Asics Gel-Lyte V that debuted three years later. A design of its time as signaled by the Grape/Aqua-ish palette, this OG colorway is slated to arrive on store shelves for the third quarter; do you now have a new top back-to-school pick? Stick with Sneaker News for US release info and let us know how this 20th anniversary model compares to Asics’ established retro runners after you’ve seen more below.
