This season finds the ASICS Gel Lyte V spotlighted in a new collaboration, one made in partnership with Japan’s monkey time, a sub-brand of United Arrows. Dubbed “Lights & Shadows,” the shoe features a simple black and white color scheme that takes inspiration from the classic noir films of Hollywood’s past. A micro-perf white leather base is overlaid with smooth white premium leather, while contrasting hits of black finishes the contrast black tongue, laces and heel. A speckled midsole rounds out the details. Check out the hard-boiled promotional shots below, seemingly lifted straight out of a Mike Hammer film, and expect the kicks to launch April 25th exclusively at monkey time Harajuku and Kyoto, followed by a global release on May 9.
