When it originally released in 1990 the Asics GEL-MAI was truly ahead of its time, featuring some of the best technologies of the era and following the design concept that an upper is not necessary when the sole functions excellently. Blurring the lines of fashion versus athletic wear and was adapted for wear by both casual and sporting consumers when it first hit the scene. Fast forward to 2016 and we saw attention return to the prized silhouette following collaborations with Ronnie Fieg and earlier this year with Slam Jam.
Known for it’s boldness the Gel-Mai has received a tech update with fuzeGEL injected directly into the sole, adding a new level of comfort to the already acclaimed silhouette. We’ve waited patiently for an inline release on this asymmetrical stunner and this April we treat our retinas to black/white and blue/black/white colourways.
You can grab these from April 13th on Australian shores at spots like Hype DC, Laced, Highs and Lows and Above the Clouds.
