Through the early months of 2021, ASICS and its footwear projects have hit the hiking trails with Andersson Bell and cracked open a cold one with Coca-Cola. Now, the Japanese imprint is aligning with Japanese label F/CE. and COSTS to craft the All-Court Alpha-L “Manchuria Window” sneaker collaboration.

This three-way project blends together elements from Chinese and Japanese fashion trends as well as sports and outdoor cultures. Its visual composition is emblematic of a Wok room, which is a Lingnan-style village building. Save for the creamy white overlays that are attached to the mid-foot and the translucent netting which acts a screen for the lateral and medial tiger stripes, the high-top kicks are engineered with sultry suedes that are dyed in a muted tan hue.

Medial side stripes are bereft of the aforementioned netting, and match up with the overlays by also getting dressed in off white. other details to point out include the tiny buttons that rest adjacent to the throat, as well as the heel branding which states “COSTS” on the left side and “F/CE” on the right. Bottom pieces see through to a creamy white exterior, and come marked by an ASICS logo that is dyed in a matching tan tone.

Interested parties can find these available through global retailers starting on April 2nd. A second model between the three parties will also be unveiled later in May.

Elsewhere in footwear news, Vivienne Westwood and ASICS recently partnered up for a GEL-Kayano 27 LTX collection.
