The Asics Gel Lyte 3 turned 25 this year, and they plan on celebrating the entire year. German sneaker shop, Afew, also plans to help Asics celebrate so they have joined in on the fun as they are both set to come together to bring you the . Let’s take a closer look.

Let me start off by sharing little background info regarding the shoe you see above. If you’re a follower of Asics, the sneaker above may look familiar to you. That’s because the sneaker is actually a revisitation of an Afew exclusive pair that was dubbed the “Koi” colorway back in 2012. Being that there was only a total of one (1) made, it was unfortunately not available to the public. That is about to change though. Three years later, Asics fans will finally get a chance to get the “Koi” colorway on the Asics Gel Lyte 3. Coming in a suede and leather construction with hits of denim found on the branding, the Afew x Asics Gel Lyte 3 “Koi” is set to drop on May 30th. Are you looking forward to this release? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

You know Asics has you covered when it comes to the functionality and comfort of a shoe. The first look of the collab looks to be promising. The use of leather, suede and denim make for a great combination. I look forward to seeing more pictures to be able to give you my final impression. Overall, it looks pretty clean.
