In the bustling world of sneaker culture, collaborations often serve as exciting milestones, telling tales of partnership, design evolution, and cultural fusion. The recent collaboration between COSTS and Asics exemplifies this, as they breathe new life into the revered Asics Gel-Lyte III.

Drawing deep from Shenzhen’s fashion roots, COSTS has been a beacon for style aficionados since 2012. Now, marrying its penchant for Cantonese aesthetics with Asics‘ distinguished Japanese craftsmanship, the duo paints a compelling narrative on the canvas of the Asics Gel-Lyte III.

The cotton hemp side panels whisper Zen-inspired tranquility while the suede upper embraces luxury. And in a nod to Cantonese symbolism, the emblematic Asics stripes transform into lychee vines, symbolizing growth and vibrancy.

The color palette, too, is an artistic feat. Olive green, reminiscent of lychee vines, gracefully graces the shoe’s quarter overlay and heel counter. A nod to their pioneering venture is evident in the dominant earth brown hues, which beautifully encase the forefoot and lace structures.
