Veganism is always a hot topic, but how many people can actually say that their sneakers are vegan?

ASICS is taking an animal-friendly approach to one of its latest Gel Lyte V drops. The entire upper of this vegan Gel Lyte V drop is draped in navy faux suede and eco-friendly mesh, while the tiger stripe paneling is accented in burgundy faux leather. Down low, its cream midsole is also composed of eco-friendly rubber and includes a grey heel hit with navy speckling. 

As much as we love premium materials on our sneakers, it's nice to see ASICS showing initiative and dipping its feet into vegan-friendly offerings. You can a pair from JD Sports today for about $149.
