Japanese footwear specialists, mita sneakers, have collaborated on a number of projects with Asics over the years, and this new pair marks the third release from their ‘Kirimomi Project’. The mita sneakers x Asics Gel Lyte III pictured above comes to us in a siple mix of black and white, but the cookies-n-cream colorup belies this pair’s subtle details. When you get in close, you’ll notice a tonal cheetah print, one that’s both easier to see in these new photos and replicated in color on the insoles. Those inner soles also read ‘FAR EAST TOKYO UENO’, a sendup of the beautiful Ueno district of Tokyo, Japan. A subtle application of a typically gawdy animal print, these Kirimomi Project GLIIIs is available for pre-sale at mita sneakers with an October 2nd ship date.
