Affix and Asics continue their partnership with the release of another GEL-Kinsei OG, this time around giving the technical runner and even more tactical aesthetic with added GORE-TEX.
Following the release of its “New Utility” offerings, Kiko Kostadinov, Taro Ray, Stephen Mann and Michael Kopelman of AFFIX have given the recently-revived classic a clean blue, brown and green-toned upper. By muting the colors, the utilitarian label gives the GEL-Kinsei a clean, industrial-indebted look that suits the shoe’s technical nature.
The sneaker comes equipped as standard with Impact Guidance System technology in the sole unit — which encourages a more natural foot movement as well as internal molded heel counters, a TRUSSTIC SYSTEM for reinforced stability and GEL technology in the front and rear sole unit components. New to the GEL-Kinsei is GORE-TEX, which has been used on the upper to provide weather-resistance.
Until Friday we’ll leave you with all of the finer details after the jump…
