ASICS Get Inspired by Retrofuturism For Their Latest CollectionRelease: 2 April 2021
ASICS’ running-turned-lifestyle silhouettes are super hot at the moment, the Japanese brand killing the game with their recent offerings. The recent HS1-S and UB1-S GEL-Kayano 14 had fans clamouring for more, and now they’ve just answered our prayers with a brand new collection featuring two silhouettes inspired by the concept of retrofuturism. For the collection, they also explored the duality between archive fashion and Japanese workwear.
The first silhouette on their hit list is the HN1-S GEL-Venture 7. They’ve taken the already hiking-inspired silhouette and put it on steroids, crafting a hybrid iteration of the existing silhouette. Channelling the technical look of the GEL-Kahana 8, they’ve blessed the HN1-S GEL-Venture 7 with a similar heel and toe. The upper also features a recycled material upper, which is a nice sustainable add on. As usual, GEL tech has been stationed in the midsole for maximum comfort.
The next silhouette has been dubbed the FN2-S GEL-Contend 5 and has been inspired by ‘street style aesthetics’. A shiny synthetic material remains on the overlays matching the toe cap. This bad boy also features a GEL-injected midsole mixed with cushy AMPLIFOAM.
This new collection, including both the HN1-S GEL-Venture 7 and FN2-S GEL-Contend 5 dropped on April 2. Head to select retailers globally, or the ASICS webstore, to score your pair.
