Find out more about the collaboration...

6 years on from the 1 of 1 handcrafted Gel-Lyte III that kicked it all off AFEW revisit the koi theme with a twist inspired by collaboration partners BEAMS. Inspired by their meeting in the land of the rising sun AFEW & BEAMS join forces to present the “Orange Koi” the second entry in the AFEW & ASICSTIGER canon.

The Koi has been playing a special role with AFEW for a long time. Since the release of the ASICSTIGER Gel-Lyte III x AFEW 'Koi' in 2015, the carp has accompanied us. On Japantag 2018 we rang in the "Year of the Orange Koi".

The upper features a luxe combination of rich golden orange suede -a nod to the sub species of Koi- paired with a premium white leather. The heels see a paired of stitched patches celebrating the worldwide nature of the collaboration as well as the respective homelands of the partners.

AFEW & BEAMS branding is called out on the midsection via white lettering while a rough ‘nappy’ suede features on the heel alongside a tumbled brown leather tab. Wooden lace eyelets, branded footbeds and logo laces complete the call out to 2015’s 25th anniversary pair.
