Asics will shortly release two exciting new interpretations of the Gel Lyte Speed, a trainer that was originally developed in 1989 in Japan, and that was launched in the USA and Europe in 1991. The Gel Lyte Speed is a lighter version of the flagship Gel Lyte III, and was designed specifically to meet the needs of experienced runners.

21 years on, Asics is now set to launch two new versions of this successful design called the Surface Pack. Inspired by the outdoors, both shoes feature things a runner is likely to come across when out and about. One of the models is grey to represent the color of the road, and has touches of red and white for a road-sign look and feel, while the other has a more off-the-beaten-track style, with green to represent grass, and a mud-splashed sole and lace design.

These two unique designs from the Japanese running company will be available from 1 December 2009 at selected retailers across Europe!

Detailed images of both colorways of the sneaker follow after the jump.
