Asics Gel Lyte was first launched in 1987 as the brand's innovative technology to provide responsive cushioning to their running footwear. Back then, this groundbreaking tech only weighs 9.9 ounces, which was the lightest then. This model also features the tri-density midsole added with a rubber outsole and the gum heel plug for better stability.
From the track, this model seamlessly dived into to street fashion for its utmost comfort and style. While the Gel technology received so much love from runners and casual wearers, many still found it a bit heavy for the track. The company thought of creating footwear which wearers can use for practically any activities they would want to.
In 2018, Asics re-modeled the Gel tech and launched the HyperGel cushioning. This technology found on the midsole has Gel cushioning beads interspersed within the TPU to come up with a single piece unit of midsole cushioning.
By using this concept, the brand upgraded its Gel Lyte sneaker by taking its upper and placed it on top of the HyperGel midsole and came up with the Asics HyperGel Lyte sneaker. This modernized version preserved the heritage details but updated with comfortable and lightweight midsole cushioning called the HyperGel technology.
