30 years. 3 decades. The GEL-LYTE™ V trainer. Time to celebrate.

How it started:
A fan-favourite fit

The inventiveness. The timeless style. It was love at first sight for the trainerheads in 1993. Thirty years on, the iconic trainer continues to slay with even more comfort, performance and finesse.

Look again: From litter to a legacy

Discarded designs and dropped ideas. The upcycled GEL-LYTE™ V trainer was especially popular in the 90s. Three decades later, ASICS remastered the classic into a style that is turning heads over and over again.

A next-gen construct:
Cycle of sustainability

Drawing inspiration from the original design process that promoted reusing and refreshing old ideas, more than 50% of our new iteration's upper is made of leftover materials.

Born on the cutting room floor


Made with leftover materials such as textiles and synthetic suedes for less waste. (RE:MATERIAL only)


MONO-SOCK™ construction for a more sock-like fit was inspired by the GEL-LYTE™ ULTRA shoe, which first launched in the early 90’s.


At least 20% of the midsole is made with recycled materials. (GEL-LYTE™ V RE PACK & Ocha Zome packs only)
