Looking to broaden how consumers view its sneakers, ASICS joined with monkey time for a pair of new GEL-Lyte Vs. Although the model can still be worn with a simple jeans and t-shirt ensemble, its polished look also allows them to be paired with a suit.

The two brands succeed in this by constructing the sneakers from premium material -- with sleek black leather and suede covering the entirety of the uppers. The soles diverge from this a little however, as slashes of white complement the heel -- giving it a marble-like look.

Overall, the new GEL-Lyte Vs emulate the appearance of traditional dress shoes. Due to this, the sneakers are incredibly versatile, bringing a subtle elegance to both business and everyday wear.
