Inspired by their Japanese roots, Asics takes design cues from ancient samurai armor for their latest lifestyle collection. The updated technical Gel Lyte EVO is offered in four unique colorways that complement their dynamic material execution. The uppers feature durable engineered TPU shells that attempt to mirror the ō-yoroi armor worn by Japanese warriors during the late 12th century. The dual density Gel-cushioned midsoles have also been updated with a harder casing that protects the interior-Gel and steers away from midsole creasing and wear.
