The Good Will Out (TGWO) x ASICS GEL-LYTE V 'Koyo' is inspired by the colour of the Japanese autumn leaves. Koyo is to the Japanese autumn what cherry blossoms (Sakura) are to spring. The viewing of the leaves (Momijigari) is a popular activity in Japan for centuries. The Koyo season starts in mid September on the northern island of Hakkaido and then moves to the south. Famous Koyo spots are Tohoku, Tokyo and Kyoto. Some trees around Tokyo and Kyoto remain colourful till early December.
The Koyo design uses three shades of dark red standing for the many red tones of the autumn leaves. Another colour is bright yellow, which originates from the yellow edges seen on fallen leaves.
The red upper is made of premium nubuck leather. The heel features a structured leather panel with the haptic quality of a leave. The sockliner has a soft all-over-leave-print. It comes with 3 pairs of extra laces.
Available in Wood Wood Copenhagen now.

Mirroring Jun Takahashi’s progressively more serious approach to running, this collection exponentially combines top Nike Running and Research Lab innovations with the designer’s athletic insights — insights that could only come from a Tokyo runner and only from a designer of Takahashi’s rare caliber. The results—which were rigorously tested by Takahashi and his GIRA running crew—signify a revolutionary rethinking of the modern running uniform.
The Nike x Undercover Gyakusou Holiday 2014 collection will release in Wood Wood Berlin, Aarhus and Copenhagen Thursday October 23rd.
Asics has entered into a collaboration with American specialty boutique Commonwealth to produce a special edition of the Gel Lyte V silhouette called ‘The Gemini.’
Inspired by the Gemini constellation which represents a pair of twins, these sneakers mirror each other in design but are opposites in terms of materials. Which is to say, where there is leather paneling on one shoe, there is suede on the other, and vice versa
Although the left and right shoe of the “Gemini” look identical at first glance, here you can better notice the mismatched sections of full-grain leather and nubuck suede. These subtle design details were implemented into the release in an effort to encourage people to be creative and celebrate individuality.
The Asics x Commonwealth Gel Lyte V 'The Gemini' will release in Wood Wood Copenhagen Saturday October 18th in limited quantities.
The third and final installment of Riccardo Tisci’s collaboration with Nike Sportswear will release in Wood Wood Copenhagen tomorrow October 16th. This third iteration of the Air Force 1 RT comes in a beige base, with the signature ribboned detailing taking on grey, black, and white accents.

Adidas Consortium now releases a one-to-one reissue of the original ZX 550, a shoe that has sadly been missing from adidas’s own archive so far.
Ensuring the shoe is treated with the utmost respect, this version stays true to the 1986 original in every detail - from the colourway and materials used to the unique outsole construction. A combination of mesh, synthetic suede, and leather is expertly executed in black, grey, white and flashes of red on the upper, whilst the model’s distinctive midsole is delivered in black-and-white.
In order that the ZX 550 could be brought back to life as close as possible to the original, the Consortium design team were lucky enough to borrow an OG model from London based collector Robert Brooks, who first refreshed the silhouette last year as his contribution to the highly limited adidas Collectors Project.
Releases in the Wood Wood webstore Saturday October 11th at 00:01 and in Annex in Berlin, Copenhagen and Aarhus at Saturday at opening hours.
