For a Liquid-Smooth Run

Back in the 1980s, Japanese design engineers pursued an alternative to air-based cushioning in running shoes. In 1987, the original ASICS GEL-Lyte hit the street, featuring a liquid-infused midsole that displaced impact shock and effectively transformed it into horizontal energy. The midsole also incorporated an anti-torque design to add stabilization to the stride. The new running system caught on with runners around the world and over time new models appeared, perhaps most notably the lightweight GEL-Lyte III that took the running world by storm in 1990 and remains immensely popular today with its split-tongue design.
