asics Tiger has linked up with BEAMS and mita sneakers, for one unique project — inspired by the Yokosuka Jacket.
Titled “Souvenir jacket” — because of the american military serving in Japan — this key item served as the point of reference for this collaboration.
The Gel Lyte III split-tongued silhouette has been transformed into part sneaker, part souvenir jacket with its dark blue suede and velour construction. Finishing touches include the co-branded embroidery, “Japan” typography and an embroidered dragon face on the left and right heels. The insole includes graphic details, with a final dragon motif decorated on the outsole of the shoe.
