In a recent collaboration, 'colette,' a popular store based in Paris, brought a new ASICS GEL-Lyte V into existence.

With ASICS having its headquarters in Japan, its model functioned well as a base for the adaption, which was reportedly done in honor of the nation's fashion week. Looking to make the mixed effort clear, colette infused the athletic silhouette with its signature color, covering the upper of the new ASICS GEL-Lyte Vs in a vibrant royal blue.

This is complemented by white accents that decorate bits of the upper, sole, laces and branding. The name of the sneaker model meanwhile appears in Greek-like lettering, which is displayed boldly on the side of the upper. In another variation, the colorway is primarily overtaken by white, with minimal blue accents coming into play.
