This past week, we’ve been giving you glimpses at the upcoming collaboration between Asics and German sneaker retailer Afew. Today, we’re finally treated to an official look at the collaborative project featuring the iconic Gel Lyte III silhouette. Dressed in a bright shade of red, along with black, white and grey accents, the upper boasts a premium suede construction and leather accents. Beneath the white midsole is a “Koi Camo” outsole, which draws inspiration from the koi fish. The heel of each shoe is adorned with “AFEW” on the left and the Japanese characters for “family” on the right, while the sock liners bear images of the very first Japan Day and production of the original Gel Lyte from 2012. The Afew x Asics Gel Lyte III “Koi” will be available in stores on May 30. Remaining stock will release online shortly after. Turn the page for a closer look.
