Initially released overseas last month, the standout BEAMS x mita x Asics Gel Lyte 3 Souvenir Jacket has finally arrived at select retailers stateside.
As its official moniker suggests, the sneaker’s distinct aesthetic is inspired from the iconic Souvenir Jacket. Dressed in a stealthy black quilted composition with suede panels, the model is punctuated with an embroidery of Japan along its heel, in addition to Japanese lettering and a Tiger on the rear. Finishing touches include camouflage-colored insoles and outsole.
Retailing for $140, you can purchase this pair at select Asics retailers nationwide starting this Saturday, July 9th.
I’m a fan of the labels and this silhouette overall. I like the blacked-out colorway and detailing on the rear, but I’m not really fond of the quilted upper.
