Tokyo based retailer Kicks Lab is teaming up with ASICS to create a GEL-Lyte III specifically for ninjas. Dubbed the “KL-SHINOBI”, this design came from the self-posed question of “What if a ninja wore sneakers?”. Utilizing premium suede, it boasts a simplistic black and grey color scheme that represents the maturity of a ninja while still coming across as an aesthetically pleasing piece of footwear. Its insole and outsole sports Japanese idioms that pays further homage to the ninja, reminding the wearer of the unique culture that entails a ninja using secret code in their everyday life. Pairs will become available at Kicks Lab, Sneakersnstuff, and other select ASICS retailers on Saturday, March 31st.
