Philadephia's UBIQ presents their new collaboration with ASICS on the Gel-Lyte V with this 'Midnight Bloom' edition. Inspired by the spring bloom and after-dark strolls through the city, the Midnight Bloom Gel-Lyte V features the hues you might see on a moonlit walk while taking in the blossoming trees of spring.
The shoe features a balance of light and dark hues constructed in premium leather, nubuck and nylon:
A soft pink midsole and inner lining signifies new blooms, held by the earthy branch brown panels. Navy nubuck mimics dark night skies, while the soft-lit white suede and nylon on the upper reflects the moon. Yellow Asics tongue stitching and leather outlines provide just enough warmth and energy, while 3M paneling on the back heel offers some additional radiance. For variety, this Gel Lyte V comes with navy, cream and yellow laces.
The UBIQ x ASICS Gel-Lyte V 'Midnight Bloom' will be available exclusively at UBIQ both in-store and online on May 17th for $145.
