ASICS began its foray into the Knit sneaker world with the introduction of the flexible tooling onto the GEL-Kayano Trainer. Now, the retro running brand is calling upon the GEL-Lyte V to sport the increasingly popular Knit material in a variety of colorways. Fully equipped with the a sock-like ankle collar, consumers will have their choice of black, grey, and white with this introductory collection. The white selection strays away from the pack a bit in the form of a semi-translucent midsole panel that houses an eye-catching infrared glow. Meanwhile, the knit featured on the black variety is also a bit different as it dons a woven-like pattern compared to the more traditional stylings of the other two. All three variations are currently available at select ASICS retailers like PREMIER with an MSRP of $160 USD. Do you like the new direction ASICS is taking with the GEL-Lyte V?
