Asics Gel Kumo Lyte 2: sleek daily trainer under $100
Gel Kumo Lyte 2 is a simple yet functional daily running shoe from Asics.
It is a solid option if you are looking for a budget-friendly trainer that can do-it-all for your day-to-day needs. That includes:
- daily running (moderate pace and shorter distance)
- light cross-training sessions at the gym
- casual wear / walking
Kumo Lyte 2 vs. 1: worth the upgrade?
The difference between two iterations is not significant, so if you can get a good deal for version 1, you won’t be missing out. Here is what’s new in v2:
- Softer heel: reinforced Gel cushion offers better shock absorption and plusher landings
- Sleeker design: Lyte 2 appears more streamlined and pointed
