Placing emphasis on energy and lifestyle, the campaign imagery and the new footwear styles further declare what it means to be “born of a wild era”.
During the launch event which was organised at INFORMAL,Janpath;I was astonished to know about the new technology advancement for which ASICS Tiger is widely spoken about i.e their GEL LYTE shoe collection.The footwear is comfortable beyond imagination and comes is various designs and colors to choose from.These are a few of them to have a look at :
GEL-KAYANO TRAINER EVO :
The GEL-KAYANO TRAINER EVO is based on the original GEL-KAYANO TRAINER. Its unique ‘MONOSOCK’ and characteristic ASICS stripe design is kept as the original while the upper is evolved to pursue a simplistic sporty look.
GEL-LYTE III :
This heritage item is more industrial than futuristic. The masterpiece GEL-LYTE III model reflects the shoe’s original purpose of performance running footwear with high level of technology and function. The new design pays homage to the future with an industrial look inspired by space-age rockets and aircraft. The GEL-LYTE III was the basic running shoe introduced in 1990. The tongue was made of sponge, and its main characteristic was the original, laterally ‘SPLIT-TONGUE’ construction that cradled the arch. The unique design created a comfortable fit, as the tongue did not shift during movement.
GEL-LYTE V :
The GEL-LYTE V was the basic running shoe introduced in 1993. The model featured ‘MONOSOCK’ construction that integrated a highly elastic tongue and leather upper, which improved the fit. A number of design variations were available, including nylon and suede models.
