To celebrate the upcoming cherry blossom season — which will peak earlier this season — Asics is launching an all-new Cherry Blossom pack inspired by one of Japan’s most amazing natural phenomenons.
Comprised of the Gel-Lyte V and Gel-Lyte III, the latter comes with a perforated tan upper and bark-colored suede overlays. To echo the Japanese cherry trees, pink tones are placed in the most eye-catching places while dark brown outsole completes the look.
The Gel-Lyte V ‘Cherry Blossom’ opts for a completely different look with a large cherry blossom patch at the ankle. The upper on the GLV is much more fair than that of the III because the Birch hue looks like a cross between pink and beige. The shoe is finished with brown accents and a soft green sole.
Both the Gel-Lyte III ‘Cherry Blossom’ and Gel-Lyte V ‘Cherry Blossom’ are available now online at AsicsTiger.com and at select retailers for $120 each.
