I had to take a break from my current photo campaign to write about this collaboration. It’s one that many questioned whether it would ever see the light of day. Spring forward from 2012 to 2015 and it’s finally here; originally seen back in 2012 as a hand made 1 of 1 at an event AFEW had in Germany.  The ASICS x AFEW GLlll “KOI” colorway looks exactly as it did 3 years ago. It dawns the same red, grey, white and black hues, but with some upgraded accents and details. Some of these are the tan hue to the heel tab, wood-like eyelets, marbled front outsole, leather split tongue and perforated side panels. This is definitely a more complete ‘story’ to the original and even though we will not see the OG shape from 2012, you can’t complain to what has been presented here…

My first pick-up for the year is an ASICS Gel Lyte V. It comes in a full navy upper with burgundy tiger stripes and some navy splatter on the midsole. Simple, to the point and quit nice. There is whoever two new things with this Gel Lyte V. One, it’s a ‘vegan’ make-up and two, it comes in a new box I personally haven’t seen before…

ASICS x Good Will Out Gel Lyte V “KOYO”


asics good will out KOYO

About time someone jumped into the arena with a ‘Really GOOD’ ASICS collaboration in 2014. So far, in my humble opinion, it’s been a very disappointing ASICS x (insert brand here) collaboration year. Everything has been boring, and ugly; shoes that had me plenty of times saying, ‘What The Fuck Is That?”. Well, except for the re-launch of the Sneaker Freaker ‘Alvin Purple’ and a couple of the BAIT collabs. Anyway, The Good Will Out came through nicely with this make-up and story behind it’s color-way dubbed, Koyo (Colorful leaves are to the Japanese autumn what cherry blossoms are to Spring. The viewing of autumn leaves has been a popular activity in Japan for centuries and today draws large numbers of travelers to famous koyo spots both in the mountains and in the cities)…
