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…

AFFIX WORKS lies in the hands of many a talented individual with brain child of burgeoning high fashion designer Kiko Kostadinov, renowned stylist Stephen Mann, jack of all trades Taro Ray, and Gimme Five founder Michael Kopelman, all coming together to spearhead the pirate radio show turned clothing imprint. After having his hand at a few collaborations with Asics, Kiko's AFFIX imprint is now receiving their own turn with the GEL-Kinsei being their choice of silhouette.

Taking on bright tones, both forthcoming colorways are influenced by hi-vis with the brighter pair opting into the blinding visage of a highlighter yellow and small notes of red detailing, its counterpart is flipped into a slightly darker variant, with deep blues taking up the seat of the focal tones and bright orange arriving across the scattered accents.

Take your pick of Brown Stone or Illusion Blue colourways as they release through our online store at midnight tonight.

Sizes US7 through to US13 (whole sizes only) will be available for $290AUD.
