END. has partnered with ASICS on a flavor-packed GEL-Lyte III collaboration inspired by traditional Japanese cuisine. One look at the seafoam green coloring on the premium pigskin nubuck upper is an immediate tip-off that the design pays homage to wasabi, the spicy condiment known the world over to sushi lovers. Details include side stripes in gunmetal grey, referencing the rocky Japanese regions where the herb originates, and contrasting peach tone accents representing sashimi and pickled ginger. Rounding out the look is an END. Japanese character patch on the tongue, along with a dual-branded leather footbed and heel patch. The kicks come in bespoke "bento box" packaging, including a wasabi bowl and chopsticks. You can sign up now for a chance to buy the shoes online through END. Launches, with the official release date scheduled for March 8th.
Release Date: 3/8/17 (Thursday)
