Product Details

The most recognised entry to the GEL-LYTE series – aided by its well-timed reissue in the mid-2000s – is no stranger to the street level wear as a style statement.

Even back when it debuted, progressive minded New York connoisseurs were attracted by this relatively high cost, near-pinnacle performance piece for its interesting yet accessible appearance. Still, fashion wasn’t necessarily the intention during its development (though its designer had an urban audience in mind) – the split tongue fit is often considered the key selling point, but from a performance standpoint it was the tri-density compression moulded EVA midsole for extra impact protection that really broke ground. That, plus the vertically extended medial and lateral midfoot frame for excellent motion control and a new interpretation of the external heel counter, made this the most comfortable ride to date from the GEL-LYTE series. The quirky details that complemented the function, like a reflective heel panel kept behind bars, have helped give this silhouette an appeal that just keeps escalating with each new colourway.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Major fault Unfortunately this product has a major issue, where the stitching meets at the bottom of the laces is abrasive and cuts your toes. As I had already warn them outside I couldn’t return them. Great look and very comfortable but can only wear with plasters.
