The last time we saw Jun Watanabe's signature colorful styling and wild patterns turn up on a sneaker, he linked up with atmos and Reebok for an Insta Pump Fury collaboration. This time, Watanabe brings his playful aesthetic to ASICS and the popular GEL-Lyte III runner. Sporting a black leather base, the shoe is complimented by tonal patent leather Arches and Zebra print overlays throughout. Jun's signature pink and blue accents appear on the laces, inner liner, Arch borders and heel. Hits of gold work the mid-eyelets, heel branding and a portion of the midsole, which is predominant white and finished off with a black rubber outsole.
The Jun Watanabe designed GEL-Lyte III will be available exclusively at EPROZE in October.
