Gel-Lyte V Re: Material
The GEL-LYTE® V sneaker draws inspiration from the idea of discarding contents from a cutting room floor and using them to create something new.
This shoe's original upper design process focused on montaging various features from different sketches that had previously been thrown away by various designers. Asics applied a similar approach for this rendition by using mixed leathers, nubucks, and suedes to create the upper.
The tooling retains its wavy design from when it first hit the running market in 1993. Only this time, Asics has revamped the midsole's construction by using at least 20% recycled materials to support more sustainable manufacturing.
Upper is made of primarily leftover materials
