Colette is back in the rotation, teaming up with Asics for a new take on the Gel Lyte 3 model. Plenty of brands have given their two cents on the popular silhouette for its 25th anniversary, and now we get to take a look at the Colette x Asics Gel Lyte 3 collab that is aiming to be the front runner in the recent designs.

The upper is split between White and a polarizing Blue hue, but that’s not what steals your attention. It’s the polka dots, because they’re everywhere. These fellas land on the upper, the ankle support and also work their way onto the midsole in an inside out kind of style. Finishing up the design is a classic split tongue. If you’re interested in what Colette x Asics put together, then look for the Colette x Asics Gel Lyte 3 “Dotty” ¬†at your local Asics retailer beginning June 27th.

What the what? Way too many polka dots have landed, and this is coming from a print fanatic.

If there was more of a mix between the regular polka dots and the inverted ones on the midsole, I’d be more of a fan. However, these still hold their own in relation to the other 25th anniversary Gel Lyte 3s.
