UPDATE: The word is out on ASICS new 'Tartufo' GEL-Lyte V pack. The pack takes inspiration from Italy's white and black truffles, flexing that ostrich leather for an extra dose of affluence. The pack will be out for a global release on October 22, keep an eye out.
ASICS elevate the GEL-Lyte V to new heights with the help of a flightless bird, the humble ostrich. Known for its domestic contributions, by way of the feather duster, the Ostrich also produces a uniquely textured leather. ASICS have opted for an ostrich embossed leather on their latest GEL-Lytes, meaning the big bird has avoided the chop. Nevertheless, the bumpy leather gives both colourways a taste of the exotic. The retro runners also make use of smooth nubuck and sport a spectacularly speckled midsole, reminiscent of the dappled surface of a giant avian egg.
The ASICS GEL-Lyte V ‘Ostrich Pack’ now from select stockists, including atmos.
