Inspired by the southern France provice of Aix-en and lavender, comes the Asics Gel Lyte V ‘Aix En Provence’ colorway. Fitting for the summer season, the lavender inspired Gel Lyte V sports a purple suede upper that balances well with the sand heel.
Below is further information behind the inspiration from Asics UK:
”…The Gel Lyte V ‘Aix-en-Provence inspired by a late-night Provençal picnic and lavender. ‘
The sides of Mount St.Victoire (Southern France) have been thickly coated in Lavender for as long as anyone can remember. It was this Lavender covered mountain that Paul Cezanne immortalised in some of his most famous works and it is the purple flower that is the inspiration for the latest release from Asics Tiger.
The legacy of Asics innovation continues with the introduction of the Gel-Lyte V, a subtle progression within the Gel-Lyte series that features a sole unit with a stability insert, Gel pad at the heel and P-Gel in the forefoot, as well as a sleeker, more form-fitting toe design to create extra comfort. It’s a more flexible and lighter sneaker. A product of this time and an intelligent piece of performance shoe design. ”
