by Henrik Buzzi


For the 25th Anniversary of the Gel-Lyte III, Afew have now teamed up with Asics and will release the notorious Afew x Asics Gel-Lyte III “Koi”. The Gel-Lyte III “Koi” features a “Koi Camo” outsole that symbolizes the Koi, which was the original inspiration behind our first Handmade Gel-Lyte III from 2012. On the Heel you find one “AFEW” and one “家族(Family) patch which is a big thank you to Afew’s Family & Friends who helped them to realize that special project. The sock liners feature pictures of the first Japan Day Event and the production of the handmade Gel-Lyte III from 2012. To pay homage to the quality of Japanese craftsmanship, the Afew x Asics Gel-Lyte III “Koi” also features some wooden eyelets and premium brown leather on the heel. For the Release at Afew’s Store, they have created a special wooden Bento Box, which comes with a special Booklet, Afew x Asics Chopsticks and a two pair of extra laces (Wasabi & Soy Sauce). Releasing May 30th at selected retailers.
