Asics To Release Denim Made in Japan GLIII


After a string of successful ‘Made in Japan’ releases Asics announce today that June 17th will mark the release date for the ‘Ranru Pack’ GLIII, this time utilising the age old technique of ‘Japanese Boro’.

When talking about Boro it’s important to know the history; made popular during the 18th and 19th century the Boro technique was used to preserve and lengthen the life of precious garments. Taking scrap pieces of denim and other textiles the Japanese would sew over rips or blemishes to strengthen and reinforce the piece. At a time when cotton was not a common commodity families would often pass these patch clad garments down through generations and repaired until the point the original fabric was almost unidentifiable.

Which brings us to this months made in Japan GLIII. Available in both indigo and black denim the two piece together a wide array of washes and types of denim with rugged stitching laid upon a crisp white midsole and gum sole. Each pair will ultimately age differently depending on the users wearing habits with the rich dye in the denim fading in the way all great Japanese selvedge denim does.

You can scoop these from June 17th from alongside select AT stockists worldwide.
