Australia’s Above the Clouds and Japan’s ASICS haven’t first worked together in 2020. Before 2023 ends, the two burgeoning collaborators are back with a “Cream/Shamrock Green” GT-2160.
Similar to the partnership’s ASICS GEL-1090, the latest proposition is rooted in retro performance running designs from earlier decades. Breathable mesh and lightweight NEXKIN panels make up the sneaker’s base layer, paying homage to the GT-2000 series. Synthetic leather overlays throughout the toe box, profiles, and spine starkly contrast underlays’ of white and silver finishes with rich green flair. The stability-focused sole unit underfoot indulges in the remainder of the ASICS GT-2160‘s color scheme. Together, each aforementioned component nods to Japanese architecture and product design, blending old and new without sacrificing function.
Enjoy official photos of the pair ahead. Raffles are currently open via Above the Clouds, closing on October 6th. A global asics.com launch will take place on October 13th for $150 USD.
