Japan boasts a vibrant streetwear scene that is recognized globally, with brands such as UNDERCOVER and sacai collaborating with names that cross international boundaries. Trends in Japanese streetstyle are channeled by a new ASICS GEL-Lyte III as the new offering indulges in a unique mix of textures and prints.
This “Ash Rock/Cream” arrangement is primarily composed of suede overlays in a soft purple tint. The signature split tongue is divided between a quilted textile appearance and a paisley print, which are both trending in the Japanese city fashion landscape. Although each shoe approaches the quilt and paisley pairing differently, purple continues to dominate the color palette to deliver a tonal look. Furthermore, the ASICS logo on the lateral side is in cream while the medial side opts for a deep violet logo. A matching off-white midsole and lilac outsole rounds out the patchwork style.
