Momentum is going strong right now for ASICS as the market has been flooded with a smorgasbord of new footwear styles lately. Some to call out include the trail-ready TRABUCO MAX as well as the Gel-Kayano 5 360 collaboration with Carnival, and now the sportswear brand is unloading more entries into the space through its ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Kadomatsu” Pack.

“Kadomatsu” refers to the customary Japanese floral arrangements that are positioned in front of a celebrant’s homes with intentions of welcoming in ancestral spirits for New Year. These tend to possess multiple breeds of flowers which, by nature, form a vibrant assembly, and these two lifestyle iterations speak to that narrative.

Both takes are made with buttery suede upper builds an off-white midsole pieces, but drastically between their primary color palettes. The first roster member splits between “Wood Crepe” and “Plum Blossom” hues, the former painting over the upper’s overlays and three-fourths of the quarter, while the latter stains the tiger stripes, heel lettering and interiors of the forefoot windows. A lighter tan tone also pops up and rests along the sock liners, toe boxes and laces.

Alongside this pair is the “Misty Pine” rendition. The bright titular tone is the focus here as it bathes the suede overlays, while “Seafoam” hits drip the side ASICS logos. From there, neutrals of grey toe boxes and liners, as well as ivory shoe strings balance out its look.

Detailed photos of each pair can be found up above, and note that ASICS has them in stock for $200 USD.

Elsewhere in the realm of kicks, the ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 and GEL-Kayano Trainer 21 “Monozukuri” Pack has been unveiled.
