ASICSTIGER joins forces with Afew and BEAMS on delivering the new 'Orange Koi' colorway of its signature GEL-Lyte III sneaker silhouette. The latest drop is inspired by the footwear label's partnership with its collaborative partners and their respective cultures of Japanese and German. The theme draws design influences from both cultures and the word "friendship" is found at the right heel in Japanese lettering to recall the relationship between the two. On the left heel is a world map to correlate to the eclectic theme as well.
Additional details include co-branding accents on the sides of the sneakers with the Orange Koi camouflage pattern design. The sole units are slightly transparent to unveil a koi fish underneath. The new sneakers will be launching on November 10th along with an apparel selection by BEAMS and an exclusive packaging of a history booklet, incense, and a bandana.
