Release Details: Brain Dead x Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS GEL-FratelliRelease: 15 August 2021
It’s long been known that Brain Dead’s Kyle Ng and Bulgarian designer Kiko Kostadinov have been allies in the fashion-sphere. So, we weren’t surprised to hear that they’ll be joining forces alongside ASICS to craft an ultra-limited pair of creps dubbed the GEL-Fratelli.
News was first shared to IG by the duo, and they’ve created an epic graphic which sees a half alien / half human wearing the shoes. The image starts to make more sense after seeing the sneak peek Ng shared of the top of the shoes to his IG Story, and the closer look that emerged recently. Incorporating the aesthetic traits of both Kiko and Brain Dead, the shoes have been given a mismatched look, with the left shoe boasting green and red hues, and the right rocking blue and yellow tones. Both the brands worked on one shoe in the pair independently from one another, with Brain Dead hitting the left and Kiko Kostadinov creating the right. Does the sole of the GEL-Fratelli look familiar? It has actually been taken from the GEL-NIMBUS 23 with the upper pulled from the ASICS LAZERBEAM.
Both Brain Dead and Kiko Kostadinov have cult-like fan bases, which can sometimes overlap, so you bet that a slew of people will be gunning to get this three-way collaboration. Sadly, only 120 pairs will be releasing of the Brain Dead x Kiko Kostadinov x ASICS GEL-Fratelli. The pairs will release on August 15 at Kiko Kostadinov and Brain Dead’s websites, plus in-store at Dover Street Market Los Angeles. Good luck!
