You hear a lot these days about the merits of sneakers made here in the good old USA, and as it turns out at least a few folks out in Europe are just as proud to go the DIY route with their runners. The project in question is the Afew x Koi Klub x Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Reworked‘, which brings Japan’s Koi Klub (who in turn brought with them plenty of premium materials) to Afew of Germany to suit up the Asics Gel Lyte III with their signature look. The result is very much a labor of love, a red, white, and black pair that was even shaped a bit differently in order to get the silhouette more in line with the OG. Click through for more looks as well as some video background of the Afew x Koi Klub Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Reworked’ and let us know what you think in the comments, and if you’re happily situated by the Afew store, check these out in person as they will be on display tomorrow at the in-store event.
shape and handmade is the diff. along with quality materials this is easily the best GEL LYTE EVER MADE.
shape and cw is dope but just not feeling the finished product. looks unfinished or inside out or something (mainly on the asics stripe). props to afew and koi klub on the collab though
