ellesse The Assist 1

Collaborator: colette, Paris

Extra: "colette bleu" basketball

Originally designed as a basketball shoe, ellesse's The Assist 1 was later adopted by skateboarders in Europe much the way the Air Jordan and Dunk was in America. Parisian boutique colette chose to drown the Assist in "colette bleu," and include a basketball in the same shade to remind all of the shoe's original purpose.
