Size and fit

The Komachi from Asics is a silhouette specifically designed for women with sizes ranging from 5.5 to 11.5. Men with smaller foot measurements may also opt to buy this stylishly-forward lifestyle shoe by going down a size or two from their usual size.

The sneaker has a knit upper made of Jacquard mesh and will not have the stability offered by shoes made of leather or suede. It also has a slim profile, but the stretchy knit upper will accommodate most foot widths.

Asics Gel Lyte Komachi Style

Looking elegantly casual has never been easier. The Asics Gel Lyte Komachi will help you get that cool vibe effortlessly. Pair your sneaker with dark tattered jeans or skinny selvedge denim. Put on a tank top and cardigan, and you’re ready to go.

Notable Features

The Asics Gel Lyte Komachi features an updated design that takes most of its cues from an iconic heritage shoe. Although a lifestyle footwear, the Gel Lyte Komachi has been inspired by a performance-packed silhouette—the Gel Lyte V—and includes many characteristics of a good athletic shoe such as breathability, durability, and light weight. The sneaker also contains Asics’ GEL cushioning system that effectively absorbs all shocks while protecting from high-impact strikes.

Asics Gel Lyte Komachi History

The Gel Lyte Komachi was introduced in February of 2017 as Asics’ first-ever exclusive-for-women sneaker. The model is influenced mainly by the Gel Lyte V but without the cleatie construction. The sneaker features a Jacquard mesh knit upper with a lace pattern design for an elegantly sporty and feminine look. It also contains overlays made of synthetic leather and a white midsole.

Additional Info

  • The Asics Gel Lyte Komachi features a sturdy rubber outsole, an EVA midsole, and mesh linings.
  • The low-top footwear weighs around 226.8 grams.
