The latest in liquid metal sneakers is this pack from Asics, featuring the Asics Gel Lyte III and the Asics Gel Lyte V.

The Asics Gel Lyte V isn't as dedicated as other pairs in this vein to the shiny look, but the Asics Gel Lyte III does go all over with its metallic flavor. While most might point to Nike as the recent starter of this trend of shiny gold and silver sneakers, remember that Ronnie Fieg did a similar thing on his "Solid Gold" pair from 2007.

There is no U.S. sneaker release date for either of these pairs from the new Asics "Liquid Metal" pack.
