Asics X Reigning Champ

Asics and Reigning Champ come together once more to give us their take on the Gel-Quantum 360 5 Trail and Gel-Cumulus 21 G-TX. Tentatively titled ‘ The Vancouver Edition’ each silhouette draws upon the city’s ‘Sea to Sky Corridor trails, and ascent from coastal cityscape to the forest-covered mountains’.

Each of the footwear pieces brings together Reigning Champs minimal tonal colour-blocking whilst readied for rain-soaked environments with either GORE-TEX atop the Gel-Cumulus, and ripstop nylon atop the Gel-Quantum.

Vancouver and its surroundings are represented through a colour palette which finds nuanced beauty in an environment often deemed ‘gloomy’. This rings true with the Glacier Grey and Midnight tones in both pairs.

The two silhouettes are now available both in store and online now with sizes US7 through to US13 (including some half sizes) available for $250AUD in the Gel-Quantum, and $220AUD in the Gel-Cumulus.

Head on over after the jump for all of the finer details…

Asics X Mita Gel-Lyte III

The 30th anniversary of the ASICS GEL-Lyte III is under way, and so it’s with open arms that we welcome mita’s contribution.

The latest riff on Shigeyuki Mitsui’s history-making design sees mita’s Shigeyuki Kunii pay homage to the titans’ shared homeland. A white upper is capped in red at the toe nodding to the Japanese flag, while ‘Far East’ sits under the translucent sole to round out the theme. Further contrast comes via the red and blue medial Tiger Stripes, and accent zip on the signature split tongue.

Pairs will release through our online store at midnight 12am AEDT this coming Saturday the 25th of January.

Asics X Affix Works Gel-Kinsei Gore-Tex

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.

Pairs will be releasing via our online store on Saturday the 2nd of November from 12am AEDT.

Pairs will be available US8 through to US13 (including some half sizes) for $320AUD.

Until Friday we’ll leave you with all of the finer details after the jump…
