You don’t have to be a fan of Bob Marley to like Rasta colored sneakers, but it won’t hurt. Utilizing the classic red, yellow, green, black and white combination this time around is Asics. They have already used this combination on the Gel Saga and the Gel Lyte 3, so it was only right to throw the Gel Lyte 5 into the mix.

This Gel Lyte 5 comes with dressed in a heavy dose of yellow on most of the suede and noeprene upper. Red, black, green and white detailing is splattered throughout the rest of the shoe to complete the Rasta theme that is largely connected to the smoking of marijuana. Whether you partake in the Rastafarian religion or not, this is a dope shoe to have in your collection because it’s a definite neck-turner.

Author’s Take

I’m a HUGE fan of Bob Marley and Reggae music, and I also love the colorway on this Asics Gel Lyte 5, the only problem is that I’m not really a fan of this silhouette . If I’m gonna a cop a Rasta-colored sneaker, it’s going to be a shoe that I actually like.
