The ASICS Gel Lyte V along with the Gel Lyte III and Gel Saga have all served as blueprints for the way that ASICS Tiger approaches its current retro slate as a number of premium collaborations set the tone for the retro running model’s transformation into the lifestyle lexicon. Now it’s rare to see the model released without some premium construction utilizing quality craftsmanship with materials like suede, leather, nubuck, and more. The latest ASICS Gel Lyte V “Blueprint” has a rather subdued obsidian upper with a more traditional and functional use of sports mesh and suede throughout. It’s by the heel where things get interesting as a shiny pre-cracked leather adds a vintage touch. Grab your pair today at Rock City Kicks for $130 USD.
