The AFEW x ASICS Gel LYTE III “Beauty of imperfection” was created together with the community. The inspiration is found in the Wabi-Sabi Philosophy. This is also reflected in the tear-away upper, which changes the upper of the shoe. There is only 1 pair of Gel Lyte III worldwide (size US 9), it comes in a special box, a tea table made by Martin Heck.
The project is from the community for the community. 100% of the proceeds go to the Förderverein Kinder- und Jugendhospiz Düsseldorf e.V. The Regenbogenland lives exclusively on donations.
The Regenbogenland Children’s and Youth Hospice is a facility for children and young people who have only a limited life expectancy due to a life-shortening illness or a severe disability. The home also supports the parents and siblings who are accompanied during this time. Regenbogenland is intended to be like a second home for the families, where life and joy of living are the focus and the remaining time for family and child is shaped as positive and fulfilling as possible.
Look for the AFEW x ASICS Gel Lyte III “Beauty of Imperfect” to become available via IG live event on February 14th. Each ticket can be picked up for €5 at afew-store.com, and the shoe will raffled off to one lucky entrant. Multiple purchases are allowed and all proceeds will be donated to the Regenbogenland Children’s and Youth Hospice.
