Asics x mita x Whiz Limited Gel-Lyte 5 ‘Recognize’ Review
Description
A three-way collaboration by three Japanese brands, the Asics x mita x Whiz Limited Gel-Lyte 5 ‘Recognize’ serves as a celebration piece for Whiz Limited’s 15thanniversary. Featuring a mostly black colorway with hints of bright neon yellow and blue that provide visibility from morning to night. We reckon the subtle camouflage print with the ‘aloha’ pattern from the tongue all around the collar enhances the overall design. A low point for us is that these kicks look cluttered, making it apparent that there were three brands collaborating behind.

The Asics x mita x Whiz Limited Gel-Lyte 5 ‘Recognize’ is a collaboration by three brands based in Japan for the 15th anniversary of Whiz Limited. With a black base and hints of neon, these kicks are made from suede and mesh panel, with a camouflage and ‘aloha’ design around the collar. Subtly, a Whiz Limited logo is embroidered on the toe box.
