Asics Gel Lyte Evo Samurai Collection (1)

by Brandon Richard

Drawing inspiration from its Japanese heritage, ASICS gives the GEL Lyte EVO a technical update for the “Samurai Collection.”

Four colorways of the runner feature TPU shells that mimic the ?-yoroi armor worn by 12 century Japanese warriors. Dual-density midsoles are enhanced by harder casings that project the GEL element and help prevent midsole creasing.

Priced at $130 each, shop the “Samurai Collection” now at kithnyc.com.
