Tokyo retailer KICKS LAB. has partnered with ASICS to deliver a stylish take on the brand's iconic GEL-Lyte III, dubbed the "KL-Shinobi." Built with a combination of premium leather and suede, the retro runner is finished in a neutral color palette made up of black, grey and white shades, resulting in a low-key design that answers the question, "What if ninjas wore sneakers?" Japanese idioms on the custom sockliner and outsole further draw a connection to the masked assassins of traditional Japanese lore. Scroll through the gallery below for detailed looks, and expect the kicks to launch March 31st at KICKS LAB. stores and select ASICS retailers. 

Release Date: 3/31/18 (Saturday)
