ASICS references its Japanese heritage with this Gel Lyte III release, which features fabrics that have it looking like a kimono.
ASICS fans will probably forever hold the Zillion x Asics Gel Lyte III up as one of the best pieces of footwear inspired by the garment, but this pair isn't really in the same lane. It's far more colourful and also introduces denim to the upper.
The contrast between the denim and kimono fabrics honours the merging of two different eras in Japanese history, while making for an extremely striking colourway. The design sits atop a red and white midsole and is finished with red eyelets and indigo laces.
The ASICS Gel Lyte III “Kimono” will be dropping in store on Saturday the 10th of October, and will then proceed to drop online on Monday the 12th of October for the retail price of R2290.00
