ASICS Tiger partners with Disney to bring you the limited-edition Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs GEL-Lyte collection and for the first time ever, ASICS Tiger introduces the GEL-LYTE for kids, with the launch of not just one, but 7 new editions. All 7 Dwarfs - Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy and Dopey - are brought to life in their own unique way. Fleece lining , black laces, print and material combinations are inspired by the Dwarfs’ bedframe and colour palettes from each outfit.
A start of a series that would create its own standard, the original GEL-Lyte set the visual blueprint for the series with its scope for colour blocking and reflective forefoot panels for extra visibility. Originally released in 1987, this iconic model returns thirty years later with a children’s version. The addition of ‘Lyte’ to the model’s moniker was due to the fact that it weighed less than a pound.
The ultra-light feel of the shoe was assisted by the solitary heel GEL unit, Nyla-sheen synthetic fabric, and DURASKIN reinforcement. An anti-torque stability system was applied with motion control in mind, while the tri-density midsole and blown rubber outsole with a gum rubber heel plug complete this mid to high mileage creation. Weighing in at just 9.9 ounces, the GEL-Lyte GS for kids was an efficient and intelligent creation that liberated the athlete.
