While sneaker culture is indeed now well-ingrained in the overarching pop canon, its the rare releases, the meticulously-thought projects, that truly define sneakerheads in 2015. The “Koi” pack is perhaps one of those signifiers, returning again courtest of German retailer Afew and ASICS. Commemorating the inaugural launch in 2012, here the two parties return to outfit a pair of the GEL-Lyte III, a publicly available version of the sneaker released three years ago. The colorway itself references Koi fish in observance of Japanese culture, and is delivered in a nifty “Bento Box” that includes branded chopsticks, ‘Wasabi’ and ‘Soy Sauce’ laces, a dustbag and a special commemorative booklet. Dropping alongside this release is a range of T-shirts designed by longtime collaborator and friend Kwills. Look for the Afew x ASICS ”Koi” pack to arrive in-store on May 30, with an online release pending surplus from the in-store drop.
