An On-Feet Look at Afew and BEAMS’ GEL-LYTE III “Orange Koi”
German sneaker boutique Afew recently revealed the sequel to one of their greatest collabs. Following 2015’s “Koi”, it is now time for the Afew x BEAMS x ASICS GEL-LYTE III Orange Koi. And leading up to the anticipated release, the store now shared some exclusive on-feet images.
In tune with 2018 as the “Year of the Orange Koi”, orange tones replace the red elements on the original GEL-LYTE III collab. The logos of Afew and the second collab partner BEAMS grace the heel quarters, while a “Koi” kanji and a worldmap appear on the heels. The latter design element highlights the celebration of German-Japanese friendship on the classic ASICS silhouette.
Next to the sneaker itself, a matching capsule collection accompanies the release. It contains limited apparel produced by BEAMS Tokyo and features two hoodies, two long sleeves and one 5-panel cap. Each piece comes with an Orange Koi graphic and – depending on the style – either a “koi” kanji or a world map on it.
Release Details – Afew x BEAMS x ASICS GEL-LYTE III Orange Koi
The Afew x BEAMS x ASICS GEL-LYTE III Orange Koi launches on November 10, 2018. It releases in-store first at Afew, while remaining pairs drop online. The shoe retails for 184,95 €.
