Kicks Lab x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “Hikeshi Hanten”

The Kicks Lab x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “Hikeshi Hanten” pays tribute to a vintage piece of apparel that once served the needs of Japanese firefighters.

Taking a page from “Hikeshi Hanten”, better known as the Edo-era Japanese firemen’s coat, the Kicks Lab x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III comes in classic dark navy, vermilion and white colors.

Made with premium leather, suede and hits of plain weave cloth, the sneaker features embroidery on the tongue, custom graphics on the insoles and a unique emblem on the outsole.

Japanese artist Sneakerwolf had a hand in producing this collab, and should you be keen to cop the Kicks Lab x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “Hikeshi Hanten”, it will be available in Singapore from January 7th, at a retail price of S$229.
