A Trio of ASICS GEL Nimbus 9s Just Touched Down!Release: 8 February 2023
At the beginning of the year, we pondered whether 2022 will be the year of ASICS,? A few months in, and our questions have already been answered because they’ve been coming through with certified bangers on a weekly basis. From HAL STUDIOS’ GEL-1130 to a surprising JJJJound colab using the GEL-Kayano 14, it’s been a year full of white hot heat! Their next point of focus is the GEL Nimbus 9, a runner from the early 2000s. We aren’t surprised that ASICS are pushing GRs pairs, since a Kiko-curated edition unexpectedly started to surface at retailers around the globe last month.
Unlike it’s UB3-S predecessors, these pairs look to the Nimbus 9s of yesteryear for Y2K-inspired builds and although the trend is over, exude a ‘dad shoe’ vibe. The highlight of the bunch looks like it was trapped in a time capsule from 2007 and features padded grey mesh, white leather upper and metallic silver Tiger Stripes. The second combo is in a simple triple black while the third chooses metallic silver and black. Each feature all the usual Nimbus 9 panelling, tooling and specialised lateral heel branding.
All three of these pairs are out right now on atmos! Head on over to their site to secure your pair now.
