Shoutout to whoever at Alpha Shadows wrote the Asahi brand bio, especially this gem: “Rather than stab you in the eyes with course and florid ornamentation, Asahi’s products whisper their good taste through soft taped detail, sympathetic natural tones and premium materials.” STAB YOU IN THE EYES. Although, I would say that is a pretty good description for a lot of what’s happening in footwear right now. Anyway, the shoes are made in Kurume, Japan (which is to classic sneakers what Okiyama is to selvedge denim), and have cotton uppers and vulcanized rubber soles. Both slip-ons and lace-ups are available in three colors.
