Asics is teaming up with not one, but two Japanese retailers to collaborate on the Asics Gel Lyte 3. With the help of BEAMS and mita Sneakers they are able to create the BEAMS x mita x Asics Gel Lyte 3 Souvenir Jacket.

Said to be inspired by the Japanese souvenir jacket, the shoe comes constructed out of an all-Black quilted textile base accompanied by the suede paneling and the camo marble on the outsole. Additional features to give it that collab feel is the tiger patch on a heel and Japanese lettering on the other heel. In addition to that, JAPAN is also embroidered on each heel, while the mita and BEAMS branding is placed on each tongue. The BEAMS x mita x Asics Gel Lyte 3 Souvenir Jacket releases at BEAMS and mita on June 11, with stateside release soon to follow.

Cool collaboration. I’m not too familiar with both Japan retailers, but it’s still dope to see them collaborating with Asics.
