Tread the Untrodden in the ASICS GEL-Venture 6
Release: 28 January 2022

Style Code: 1201A553.100

Colourway: White/Pure Silver

The prevailing outdoors shoe trend has resulted in many sneaker brands trying to one-up each other in a contest to see who delivers the most over-the-top designs. While ASICS are definitely far from immune to this GORP glamfest, they do still deliver some more sensible options for real-world use and daresay regular people. Enter the GEL-Venture 6, an unassuming trail model with a modest spec sheet that delivers exactly what’s needed, without being excessively extra.

Firstly, the silhouette ticks the ‘Y2K aesthetic’ box with its retro-modern look, something ASICS specialise in thanks to copious amounts of silver in their shoes. There is a nice amount of dark blue accenting throughout, along with some red retro webbing. The welded Tiger Stripe branding is a little flashy, again in chromed silver, which offsets the restrained remainder of the design. Lots of mesh keeps the weight down, while suede toe and heel caps are perfectly placed to protect against abrasion. Underfoot is a similarly practical affair. There’s just enough GEL in the soles for reliable cushioning, and lightly lugged tread suits most urban conditions that these shoes will likely find themselves in.

The ASICS GEL-Venture 6 is available now directly from ASICS.
