Artist’s Take

Mad respect to Afew x Asics on their awesome collab. They came so tough with their “Koi” pack from the bento shoe box to the chopsticks and additional laces. They paid respect to Japanese culture in a major way. The dope colorway and detail throughout make this release something I am sure to cop.
