Editor’s Notes: END. is looking to the Far Eastern delicacy of wasabi as inspiration for its new collaboration with ASICS on the staple GEL-Lyte III.
First off, the sneaker’s green pigskin nubuck across the upper is designed to mimic the color of wasabi, while the gunmetal grey ASICS stripes are a nod to the regions where the herb originates. Touches of complementary peach then represent the classic combination of sashimi, wasabi, and pink pickled ginger.
To brand the collab, END. has utilized a Japanese character patch on the tongue, as well as a dual-branded leather footbed and heel patch.
Appropriately, the GEL-Lyte III comes packaged in a custom END. x ASICS bento box with an END.-branded wasabi bowl and chopsticks.
