Gel-Lyte III OG 'Kodo' - Barely Rose/Rose Quartz
Following up on the recently released Wisteria Gel-Lyte III, ASICS continues to journey through Japanese culture and folklore. This time they draw inspiration from kōdō (香道) which translates to "Way of Fragrance" – a phrase which refers to the art of appreciating Japanese incense. Kōdō is one of the three classical Japanese arts of refinement, along with kadō (flower arrangement) and chadō (tea and the tea ceremony). The theme is spread over two shoes; this one which is dedicated to Hydrangea and another to Eucalyptus fragrances.
This particular pair is inspired by Hydrangea flowers, whose mauve petals create the basis of this colourway. The uppers consist of soft tumbled leather with overlays in premium suede. The accents in light grey and muted blue are used sparingly as to not over-complicate the shoe. A final touch of soft white graces the sole and heel tab, along with the cotton laces.
