Asics Gel Lyte V Vice City History
To accommodate the constant changing needs of the consumers, Asics has been nonstop in developing shoe technologies. The brand invented the Gel cushioning system, which is placed on the heel and forefoot that works like the shock absorber with each stride.
The running kick Gel Trendy was the first model to use the Gel cushioning technology which was launched in 1990. In 1987, the trainer Gel-Lyte was released in the market which displayed color blocking and reflective forefoot. This variation used single gel unit on heels, Nyla-sheen fabric and Duraskin resulted in lightweight shoes. Weighing only 9.9 ounces, Gel-Lyte boasted its light weight and smooth energy transfer from heel to toe.
In 1993, they released the Gel-Lyte V. This simplified silhouette has mesh inserts on the toebox and side panels to improve the breathability. The Gel-Lyte is very popular for long distance running and contains sock-like lining and placed Gel cushioning in heel and toe.
Despite its fame during the early 90s in the market, the Gel-Lyte V disappeared from the spotlight. Asics revived the well-loved silhouette 20 years after and had undergone various collaborations with various artists, designers, and retailers.
