Asics x mita x Whiz Limited Gel-Lyte 5 ‘Recognize’ Review
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.
Value for Money
Unique and easy to recognize as being different
Neon colors are major plus during the night
Comfy, detachable insole
Design and materials didn’t blend well with each other
