After a first initial look the other day, we can today unveil the much anticipated collaboration between German sneaker store Afew and ASICS on the popular GEL-Lyte 3 runner. The Gel-Lyte III “Koi” features a “Koi Camo” outsole that symbolizes the Koi, which was the original inspiration behind the store’s first handmade Gel-Lyte III from 2012. On the heel of the sneaker you find two patches – one reading “AFEW” and the other one reading “家族”(Family). The sock liners feature pictures of the first Japan Day Event and the production of the handmade Gel-Lyte III from 2012. To pay homage to the quality of Japanese craftsmanship, the Afew x Asics Gel-Lyte III “Koi” also features some wooden eyelets and premium brown leather accents on the heel. The Afew x ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Koi” is part of this year’s 25th Anniversary Gel-Lyte III Collection and will be released on May 30 at Afew. Stay tuned to the project here.
