The duo of the Japanese brand and the Bulgarian designer surprise us again with a new silhouette inspired by the GEL-NIMBUS-22.

Asics x Kiko Kostandinov Gel Nimbus

The ASICS product team has reimagined a series of ASICS footwear offerings inspired by the concept of “Retro Futurism”. For this capsule, the duality between archived fashion silhouettes and Japanese workwear has been explored.

The product range is divided into two categories: Future Tech and Sustainability. In this way, each of the models explores silhouettes from a retro and modern point of view.

ASICS has revisited the functionality of the GEL-NIMBUS 22 running shoe and evolved it with a Future Tech finish to create the two FN1-S GEL-NIMBUS 22 running shoes.

The retro and modern vision parallels the design lineage of the flagship running series, with a technical mesh upper accented with shiny eyelets and metallic hues. Combined with FLYTEFOAM Propel technology in the midsole for responsive cushioning, this interpretation is offset with bright colours and a shiny representation of GEL technology. The first pair is composed of gold and red hues; while the second pair combines teal with white and red detailing.

All models/colorways played directly by Kiko’s creative team are designated through a coding system developed by Kiko Kostadinov and the ASICS product team. This code is placed before the product name (unique to Kiko’s consultancy) and continues sequentially for the duration of the partnership.

You can find them on the ASICS website for 180€.
