Lying to the south-east of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is renowned for being something of a tropical paradise. For Spring 2016, ASICS take influences from the abundance of glowing plankton amongst the coral atolls for a remake of the GEL-Lyte III and GEL-Lyte V.

Constructed using suede uppers, the GL3 is fitted with a Lily White and Aqua Green colourway whilst the GL5 takes on a Indian Ink make-up, both of which are finished with glow-in-the-dark speckle detailing across the upper and midsole, emulating the the islands’ coastal aura.

For those interested in the ASICS Gel Lyte “Maldives” Pack, You can scoop them up at End Clothing on March 26th.
