Introducing the past, present and future of ASICSTIGER™ – the GEL-LYTE® V Sanze .
To mark 100 years since the birth of ASICS founder Kihachiro Onitsuka, we’ve dropped the shoe that forges a path to the future of ASICSTIGER™.
The GEL-LYTE® V Sanze ignores sneaker stereotypes by bringing craftsmanship and creativity together in a way never before seen on the streets. The innovative design is based on the fan-favourite GEL-LYTE® V , then infused with extra attitude for a shoe that belongs in the city.
A sneaker with the soul of a running shoe, the latest iteration of GEL™ is present in the GEL-LYTE® V Sanze . This results in superior shock absorption, giving core running performance and quality to a stylish sneaker.
The power of GEL™ is maximised thanks to GEL™ sealing technology developed exclusively for this shoe. Resin-coated GEL™ is located directly below the heel to absorb impact and provide comfort beyond compare.
The characteristic wave design on the heel harks back to the spirit of the original GEL-LYTE®V, and coupled with the unique watermark that represents the the DNA of ASICSTIGER™, this shoe is the ultimate expression of the brand.
Further up, the unmistakable Mono-Sock™ and meticulously designed eyelets add style and attitude to the shoe’s profile, as well as making it easier to put on and take off. A simple, supple laced fit inspired by the make the GEL-LYTE® V Sanze ’s comfort as impressive as its aesthetic.
The Japanese heritage of the brand is present in the kimono-like construct of the shoe’s upper. Its profile is further enhanced colour blocks that accentuate the toe and heel of the all-mesh upper, drawing in the eye. The knitted upper is lightweight and strong, making the shoe perfect for any time of year.
The GEL-LYTE® V Sanze is truly worthy of our legendary founder’s centenary celebration.
This isn’t a re-release. It’s a reinvention.
