ASICSTIGER and END announce a fashion-food collaboration in the form of the GEL-LYTE III 'Wasabi'. 

The new collaboration designed to wet the appetite of sushi enthusiasts around the world draws inspiration from the Japanese herb Wasabi. 

It is Wasabi's seafoam green colour that lends itself to the pigskin nubuck upper of the new GEL-LYTE III, with gunmetal ASICS stripes providing a strong contrast that evokes the rocky regions in which the herb originates. 

Subtle tropical peach details compliment the seafoam green upper, with a dual-branded leather footbed and heel patch providing finishing details.

The ASICSTIGER x END GEL LYTE III 'Wasabi' sneaker will come packaged inside a bento box alongside a wasabi bowl, chopstick, and shoe aglets. 

An exclusive London pop-up event will see the launch of the food-focused collaboration on March 8th. Stay tuned to END and ASICS official channels for further details.
