Asics x AFEW Gel-Lyte III “B.O.I”

by teamgoodlife.

Asics and Düsseldorf-based AFEW’s partnership dates back almost a decade and it’s now starting a new chapter in 2022 with one of their cleanest releases yet. 

The Gel-Lyte III “B.O.I” aka “Beauty of Imperfection” is inspired by the Japanese philosophy of “wabi-sabi” – an aesthetic and world centered on the acceptance of imperfection – and is reflected in the sneaker’s wear-away upper. It’s styled in a polar green and Seagrass colourway with uppers crafted from premium suede. The side wall is detailed with wear-away tiger stripes, which when worn, will reveal a different shade underneath. The heel is adorned with co-branding that sits above a jagged stitched overlay that’s split between suede and mesh. Finishing off the look are printed cork insoles and traditional gum outsoles.

The Asics Gel-Lyte III “B.O.I” releases FCFS online on Friday March 25th at 10am, price aed710, UK6.5 – UK11.
