Official pictures of one of the most amazing collaborations linked to the Asics Gel Lyte III 25th Anniversary have finally appeared. German shop AFEW unveils their Asics Gel Lyte III “Koi” in its final version after several previews. The outsole uses a “Koi Camo” pattern inspired by the Japanese fish scales. The red and white suede upper pays tribute to the Japanese national flag. Two patches are applied at the heel “AFEW” and “家族” (family) to thank their families and close friends who helped them to realize that project.
The insole uses a photographic reproduction of the first “Japan Day” from 2012, where the first handmade edition of the Koi GL3 was shown. Finally, to pay tribute to the skills of Japanese craftsmen, the pair uses wooden eyelets and premium brown leather on the heel.
The pair will be sold in its collector packaging on May 30, 2015 at 8:00 am at AFEW shop Düsseldorf, Germany. The remaining sizes will be sold online. More about the release on afew-store
