Yeah we’ve got at least one steady stream of collabo Asics models here in the US, but the folks around the rest of the world have a much easier time grabbing these kind up team-ups. This latest brings in two oustide entities, Koi Klub of Japan and Afew out in Germany, to work on the beloved split-tongue banger the Asics Gel Lyte III in celebration of Germany’s “Japan Day” on June 2nd. The colorblocking is apparently anchored by the Japanese aspect, their Nisshōki flag oozing through the details with the red, white, and black palette as well as the circular hit towards the heel. Click through for the teaser of the Afew x Koi Klub x Asics Gel Lyte III, which will launch at the Japan Day celebration on June 2nd at Afew in Dussledorf, coinciding with some Japanese BBQ and an exhibition by artist Yoske Nishiumi.
