Asics will reference its Japanese heritage with this Gel Lyte III release, which features fabrics that have it looking like a kimono.

Longtime Asics fans will probably still hold the Zillion x Asics Gel Lyte III up as the best piece of footwear inspired by that garment, but this pair isn't really in the same lane. It's much more colorful and also introduces denim to the upper.

This "Kimono" Asics Gel Lyte III is arriving at global Asics accounts like Hypebeast now.
