For the latest collaboration, the duo has redesigned ASICS’ GEL-1130 model. For this new version, they’ve presented a vegan-friendly sneaker that’s primarily made from recycled materials, from the breathable mesh that covers the sneaker’s upper to the faux leather overlays, including the laces.
Design-wise, the shoe features a cool retro feel to it, featuring sage green and brushed silver overlays across the upper, in classic ASICS fashion. These flow into an off-white GEL midsole, with a TRUSSTIC torsion arch, also in sage green, that links the forefoot and heel. Last, but not least, there’s a black-grey rubber outsole that finishes off the sneaker.
Paying homage to ASICS’ heritage and legacy, the model comes in a branded shoe box with both brands’ hometowns, Kobe and Copenhagen. The box is made with recycled material and uses water-based printing for the branding.
