Following on from their successful Koi pack which came out in a special “bento box” in 2015, Afew and Asics have teamed up once again this year. With a little help from BEAMS, an orange Koi will be released this Saturday.
This time, the great working relationship between Germany (afew and BEAMS) and Japan (Asics) has resulted in a Gel Lyte III boasting a patch on the left heel that sports a map of the world. The Japanese word for “friendship” is also on show. Both BEAMS and Afew branding features on the side of the sneaker. The loud orange sets off the white lettering to particularly good effect.
The fact that there will be two different soles, each designed specifically for this Gel Lyte III, demonstrates a loving attention to detail. They allude to the sneakers’ Japanese origins and present an orange koi camouflage pattern. But that’s not all, Afew and Asics are even including matching accessories as part of the pack! The Afew x BEAMS x ASICS Gel Lyte III will be launched on 10 November in a special wooden box which will also contain a bandana, incense sticks and a brochure on the history of the partnership.
The box is being released as an extremely limited edition. Among the options available, you still have until 8 a.m. on 10 November to register with Afew for the online raffle via this link.
