UB5-S GEL-NIMBUS 9 - Black/Gun Metal
The joint-partnership with ASICS and the studio of Kiko Kostadinov takes a new step with their latest UB5-S. Unlike previous endeavours, this model leaves the Gel Nimbus 9 silhouette largely as it was when released in 2007. Of course they couldn't leave it too simple – details from the GEL-TRAIL-ATTACK have been worked-in around the heel for good measure.
A lace-like mesh forms the upper, with synthetic overlays dotted and faded with pops of colour amongst the metallic base alluding to clouds of gas floating in the galactic abyss. The midsole is bejewelled with glistening GEL pods, looking almost like hard candies but definitely not something you'd like to eat. Overall, we can't say we're surprised that we have another banger on our hands.
