Asics Gel Lyte V “Tartufo” Sneakers

Running is something that we’re always striving to get into at Coolector HQ and, as with most things, the enjoyment levels will be significantly ramped up if you’ve got the right equipment. So far as footwear is concerned, we’re thinking that these superb looking Asics Gel Lyte V “Tartufo” Sneakers will be difficult to beat.


These great sneakers from Asics is named after a kitchen delicacy, Tartufo, which are elusive mushrooms known as the “diamonds of the kitchen” and are typically foraged from around the roots of oak and hazelnut trees in central Italy. Whilst this delicious sounding food is the inspiration for the aesthetics, you can rest assured that Asics’ trademark quality for running shoes is evident as well and they will look good both on and off the running track.

On the Right Track

Finding a good pair of running shoes can be a revelation and will utterly change the way in which you run and the comfort and style of the Asics Gel Lyte V “Tartufo” Sneakers is second to none. With a great aesthetic and all manner of features that really set them apart from the competition, these fantastic looking sneakers from Asics will tick all of the right boxes from a performance and aesthetics point of view.



Each pair of Asics Gel Lyte V “Tartufo” Sneakers are crafted with a combination of ostrich-textured leather and brushed suede to replicate the look of the white and black truffles which the footwear is named after. Asics really know what they’re doing when it comes to footwear of this nature and if you’re wanting a pair of sneakers which is equally as good for day to day style as they are when heading for a run, this is the pair for you.

Classy Comfort

These limited edition sneakers are right up our street at The Coolector and though we definitely don’t run as much as perhaps we should, awesome footwear like this might act as the perfect catalyst for ramping up the running – though they look so cool, they’re more likely to be just worn day to day.



There are certain footwear brands that typically excel when it comes to delivering sneakers that expertly straddle the line between style and comfort and Asics are certainly one that falls into that bracket – a fact admirably illustrated by these supremely well made and aesthetically superior Asics Gel Lyte V “Tartufo” Sneakers.
