Product details

As part of the new ASICS tiger gold collection for 2015, the Gel-Lyte III came in a wide sellection offering premium materials, from classic leather and mesh upper overlays to elite waterproof suede constructions. The upgraded version, Gel-Lyte V continues the Gel Lyte heritage, with a fresh and street-ready vibe. Among them, wearers find the colors of purple, orange or Burgundy are very eye catching! The basic black and white stand out with neo colors and stripes. With the hip design, and young and tasteful look, they are good for both dressing up or down.

The high versatility is also the reason of the success of the Gel Lyte series. The style and comfort level are meant for all day and everyday wear across genders and ages. They are comfy for running and walking. Some users find the Lyte is more comfortable than their Nike Roshe or Air max. To an extent, it can be so comfy that wearers can have them on for a whole day and don’t want to take them off. The price, unique style and comfort make the shoe a big win.


The Gel-Lyte III runs a bit narrow. Many users ordered half size bigger. Some users with wider feet go one size up from their normal sneakers. However, some users find the V is half size larger or true to size


These shoes have breathable fabric and mesh uppers for a classic, comfy fit. The reinforced sockliner and heel-collar offer greater padding and comfort. The distinctive split-tongue helps to prevent typical side-to-side tongue movement. Some users with wide feet like it for another reason, as it helps the feet stay cool while the traditional tongue can keep the heat in more.

Midsole/ outsole

The shoe has removable cushioned footbed for all day comfort. The EVA midsole give great cushioning. The rubber outsole has flex grooves for comfort.
