You don’t have to be cultured to understand just how dope of a piece the Japanese Souvenir Jacket is. It seems that the satin outerwear staple is being rediscovered these days and both mita and BEAMS have teamed up with Asics to aid in its revival. The two brand's latest sneaker collaboration is so fresh that it's our top pick for Sneaker of the Week.

The Asics Gel Lyte III is the perfect candidate for this collaboration and it is given a clean quilted upper backed by tonal black suede. The heel is where things really get interesting as a bold embroidered tiger and Japanese symbol fulfill the requirements for proper stylization in executing the design. A camo outsole and white embroidered branding give the pair a touch of authentic character.

This awesome-looking Asics Gel Lyte III "Souvenir Jacket" release will debut at both BEAMS and mita stores on Saturday (June 11) and will come with limited edition matching gear as well.
