ASICS once again tap into their history and look to a relationship that once was the creation of a standout iteration within the history of the GEL-LYTE III.
When it comes to ASICS and AFEW, it all started back in 2015 with a rendition of the GEL-LYTE III known as the ‘Koi’. Once teased across the web, it had the sneaker community asking many questions and caused a sense of desperation for people to get their hands on a pair, resulting in multi day camp outs. With such fan fare surrounding the release, this ended up resulting in the duo revisiting the ‘Koi’ with the alternate ‘Orange Koi’ a couple years later.
Fast forward to 2022 and we see this successful duo team up once again to bring a new set of ideas to the GEL-LYTE III. Dubbed the ‘Beauty Of Imperfection’, this latest take focusses on the mindset and ideas of the Wabi-Sabi philosophy, a philosophy that finds the beauty within imperfections. In an effort to Make these ideas become a reality whilst also adding a sense of personalisation to each pair, the ASICS Stripes come equipped with a ‘wear away’ upper that allows each person to add their own imperfections… A great sense of encouragement to wear this latest iteration and to really make it your own.
Make sure to take a closer look at the AFEW x ASICS GEL-LYTE III ‘Beauty Of Imperfection’ below and make sure to be ready to grab your pair, launching in-store and online at Footpatrol on 25.03.22, priced at £150.
