Packer Shoes x ASICS GEL-Lyte V ‘Scary Cold’ Review

Packer Shoes x ASICS GEL-Lyte V ‘Scary Cold’ Review
Description
We believe fans of Seinfeld are going to recognize George Costanza’s Gore-Tex jacket in Packer Shoes X ASICS GEL-Lyte V ‘Scary Cold’. Made by Asics in collaboration with Packer Shoes, this release could be a go-to pair when the weather gets bad cold. Featuring the Gel Lyte V silhouette, these kicks have a tan and black colorway made from suede and leather, metal hardware on the lace holes, and mesh beneath the stripes, constructed together with visible seams. Besides the overall vibe, what attracts us the most are the laces which provide a nice contrast against rusty color tone.

The Packer Shoes X ASICS GEL-Lyte V ‘Scary Cold’ takes inspiration from that Seinfeld in which George Costanza showed up with his Gore-Tex jacket. Featuring a black and tan colorway, these kicks are excellently designed and executed using robust suede, premium leather, breathable mesh, and striking metal hardware.
