With their anticipated collaborations with Sean Wotherspoon and COMME des GARÇONS still having yet to receive an official release date, ASICS is making sure their audience is being well stocked with other versions of their classic GEL-Lyte III until then. Up next on their release calendar comes a duo of new colorways falling under their latest “Monozukuri Pack”. Translating to “Making of Things” in English, the capsule serves as a direct homage to the unprecedented pursuit of innovation and craftsmanship that is heavily valued within Japanese culture. Two Spring-ready colorways including a “Smoke Blue” and an “Ivory” will be included in the collection, both of which feature upper overlays mixed between leather and hairy suedes, mismatching lateral/medial ASICS logos, and red Hakano heel stamps that translate to “GEL” technology in Katana lettering. As of now, both are set to drop overseas on April 17th, but stay tuned as we receive word on a stateside release.
In other news, Stussy’s Nike Spiridons are getting another release this Friday.
