HAL STUDIOS Celebrate the ASICS GEL-1130Release: 27 January 2023
Located on the western fringe of Australia, Highs and Lows have been holding down their hometown Perth for the past 17 years. With a track record second-to-none in their antipodean backyard, the birthday bonanza is being overseen by founder Matt Thomas and creative director John Bouquet, via a collaborative project released under the freshly-minted HAL STUDIOS® moniker.
The GEL-1130 is coated in natural tones and textures, with hirsute suede and faux leather contrasted against wide-open mesh underlays. The refined modus operandi is extended with the use of minimal branding, transparent heel tags and subtle logo callouts embroidered on the lateral tiger stripes. Conceived within a ‘maximal-minimalist’ ethos, the GEL-1130 is still loaded with ASICS’ coveted performance tech, including the signature Trusstic support system and iconic GEL cushioning. Three sets of laces are available to customise the trail-inspired palette.
The HAL STUDIOS® x ASICS GEL-1130 is one of SF's cover stars for Issue 47. Stay tuned for more information on that!
Pairs will be made available today on April 14 on the retailer's web store. On April 16 they'll hit Up There and in-store at Highs and Lows. A global release will also hit ASICS stockists on April 23.
