As an ode to evening strolls during the spring season when flowers are abloom, Philly’s own UBIQ has teamed up with ASICS to present their rendition of the classic GEL-Lyte V runner entitled “Midnight Bloom”.
Utilizing the classic runner silhouette of Asics Gel Lyel V model, the shoe is a mix of premium materials to balance the light and dark hues. Soft suede, premium nubuck, and comfy nylon make for a supportive upper, while the neoprene inner sleeve provides a cushy fit.
A soft pink midsole and inner lining signifies new blooms, held by the earthy branch brown panels. Navy nubuck mimicks dark night skies, while the soft-lit white suede and nylon on the upper reflects the moon.
Yellow Asics tongue stitching and leather outlines provide just enough warmth and energy, while 3M paneling on the back heel offers some additional radiance. For variety, this Gel Lyte V comes with navy, cream and yellow laces.
The UBIQ x Asics GEL-Lyte V “Midnight Bloom” will release this Saturday 5.31.14 at 12am midnight EDT online at PackerShoes.com and in-store at 12pm noon.
Retail is set at $160 USD.
