Japanese sneaker brand ASICS and Singapore’s premier sneaker shop Limited Edt have continued their streak of collaborations with the ‘Vanda’ pack. Consisting of the iconic GEL-Lyte III and GEL-Lyte V silhouettes, they’re reimagined as a tribute to the hybrid orchid that represents Singapore’s diversity; Vanda Miss Joaquim aka the Singapore Orchid. But of course, ASICS’s heritage remains a constant as both its black ‘KURO’ and purple ‘MURASAKI’ won’t be mistaken for anything other than their respective classic templates.
The ‘MURASAKI’ (GEL-Lyte V), with its deep purple, azure, and yellow colourway, is for sneakerheads who prefer pops of colours to their look while the ‘KURO’ (GEL-Lyte III) is starkly black, which is contrasted by the laser-etched orchard print on its premium, soft leather upper. Plus, its gold brass finish on the heel and reflective stripes would add more character to your all-black get-up.
The Limited Edt x ASICS GEL-Lyte ‘Vanda’ Pack is available now at Sole What Mid Valley and One Utama. The ‘KURO’ retails at RM739 and the ‘MURASAKI’ retails at RM669 with sizes ranging from US7 to US11.
