A Top 10 of the most popular ASICS sneakers

Could you use some help finding the perfect ASICS sneaker for you? With this list of popular ASICS sneakers, it's easy to find your new perfect shoes!

ASICS GEL-LYTE™ V 'Multi' | 1201A871.961

The classic silhouette is back! The wavy design from 1993, when the shoe was first launched, is reflected in the design of this GEL-LYTE V. In addition, the ASICS GEL-LYTE V 'Multi' remixes several influences from 30 iconic GEL-LYTE™ V collaborations. These include leather, nubucks and suede from previous projects combined to create the upper.

Still, there has been some innovation. This time, in fact, at least 20% recycled material has been used for the midsole for more sustainable production. With its unique look, the sneaker will fit under any outfit. And with MONO-SOCK™ construction and GEL™ technology, you will experience comfort in everyday situations. So besides the fab look, they also run great! Besides the 'Multi' version, you can also get them in the 'Yellow/Blue' colorway.

ASICS EX89™ 'White/Illusion Blue' | 1201A476

Originally designed by Toshikazu Kayano in the 1980s as his first design for ASICS: the EX89™!, this sneaker combines the original influences of the 1989 GEL-EXTREME™ basketball shoe with modern cushioning. Moreover, you'll find inspiring colour blocks that match the uniforms of the iconic NBA team of the time. The aerial view of a city has been used as inspiration for the pattern of the outsole, based on the designer's first business trip to the United States in 1987.

Already a classic of its time, this version is a great look for casual wear and a good performer for basketball and other sports. Plus, it's available in three additional colorways: 'Clay Grey', 'French Blue' and 'Grand Shark'.

GEL-SONOMA™ 15-50 'Bright Rose' | 1201A852.700

The design of the GEL-SONOMA™ 15-50 is inspired by various outdoor influences. For instance, it has taken inspiration from the upper of the 15-50™ cross-country sneaker. It has also been adapted with a nature-inspired colour palette. And because of nature's versatility, they are therefore available in two additional colorways: 'Olive Oil/Dark Brown' and 'Black/Green'. The tooling uses parts from the first two GEL-SONOMA™ trail shoes. Finally, a GORE-TEX™ membrane ensures your feet are always protected in wet conditions.

So from daily walks to hiking on rocky slopes, with the features of the ASICS GEL-SONOMA 15-50 'Bright Rose' sneakeres, you are always assured of advanced cushioning and traction in different conditions.
