Can an Asics Gel Lyte V still manage to stand out without a collaborating partner putting its stamp of approval on the shoe?

The silhouette is about to have an even harder time of it thanks to the growth that the Asics retro line will see with the re-introduction of models like the Gel Respector. But, it's trying anyway with releases like this one, which sports a nearly blacked out upper that's broken up by a midsole in white and purple.

The Asics Gel Lyte V in question is up for grabs now at retailers like Feature Sneaker Boutique.
