AFEW x ASICS GEL-Lyte III OG “Beauty of Imperfect” is Coming Soon
Earlier this month, Euro retailers AFEW linked up for a special-edition, one-of-a-kind release with ASICS on the GEL-Lyte III for charity. The pair in question was inspired by Wabi-Sabi philosophy, and featured a special box, and a tea table made by Martin Heck. Naturally, it’s rarity meant that us plebs would never get our hands on them — but don’t fret, as thee retailers have another pair on the way — this one expecting to see a much wider release: the AFEW x ASICS Gel LYTE III “Beauty of Imperfect”
Once again, the Eastern philosophy is reflected in the rear motifs (reading Wabi/Sabi in Chinese), and its tear-away upper, which changes the aesthetic of the shoe. Here, though, the palette is prepared in something significantly softer, with Easter-like hues of pastel purple, muted green, cream, and gum, set against light bright bone, sail, and white suedes.
Look for the AFEW x ASICS Gel LYTE III “Beauty of Imperfect” to become available via raffle come February 26, followed by a wider launch at retailers at a date yet to be specified. Until then, grab a very first look at the pair here below, and as always, keep your eyes glued to our official Twitter account for further updates on its release.
