Release of the Week: UBIQ x ASICS GEL-Lyte V “Midnight Bloom”

It may always be sunny in Philadelphia, but that hasn’t stopped Philadelphia-based sneaker store UBIQ from collaborating with ASICS on the “Midnight Bloom”.

To welcome spring season, Philadelphia-based sneaker store UBIQ has collaborated with ASICS on the GEL-Lyte V “Midnight Bloom”. The sneaker draws inspiration from walks taken in the wee hours of the night, when there’s nothing but the dark skies above and moonlight shining on the path ahead.

The soft-lit white toe box and contrasting navy accents mimic the moonlit night sky, while pink inner lining and midsole represent newly bloomed flowers. The UBIQ x ASICS GEL-Lyte V is made using a mix of buttery suede, premium nubuck and comfy nylon, and are finished off with yellow accents on the sidestripe and 3M paneling on the heel.
