Asics Updates Classic Models With GEL-Lyte Evo NT, GEL-Kayano Trainer EVO

Asics reimagined its classic GEL-Lyte and GEL-Kayano Trainer silhouettes with the release of the GEL-Lyte Evo NT and the GEL-Kayano Trainer EVO, available now.

“We have reimagined these shoes with a modern twist that speaks to the sporty, urban look and lifestyle that our ASICS Tiger fans love,” said Mike Jensen, director of lifestyle with the ASICS America Corporation.

For the 25th anniversary of the GEL-Lyte, the shoe boasts the same technology with sleeker design, with four-piece midsole and outsole construction and a seamless mesh upper. The shoe features two of the brand’s technologies; its Dual Density FluidRide midsole and GEL in the heel. The GEL-Lyte Evo NT is available with a retail price of $120 in five colorways for men: all white; black and dark gray; red and white’ gray and red; and white and mint.

The GEL-Kayano Trainer EVO also gives the classic GEL-Kayano Trainer silhouette a sleek look, adding mono-sock construction and mesh detailing to the seamless upper. The shoe is available for men in five colorways and women in two. For men, the shoe comes in all white, all black, gray and black, blue and black, and red and black. For women, the shoe is available in black and pink and plum and purple. The shoe has a retail price of $90.

The GEL-Lyte Evo NT and the GEL-Kayano Trainer EVO releases aren’t the only drops from Asics this week; the brand released the GEL-Quantum 360 on Wednesday, a running performance shoe with full-length visible GEL unit on the outsole.
