UPDATE: This 'Moon Crater' ASICS Gel Respector sold out scary quick when it hit stores at the start of June, but we’ve got another plug for all those who missed out! MATE took these fine on-foot shots of the shoe, and will have it in stock on June 16.
The ASICS Gel Respector is staunch. The thick rear-end that dramatically slopes down to the toe already gives the shoe a strong look, but these photos take the silhouette to a new level. This colourway on Gel Respector's colourway has been dubbed the 'Moon Crater' – a likeness drawn from its upper of deep black which plunges into a soft, stone grey. While the colourway is A1, the premium suede also deserves a mention. The material's quality is soapboxed by what looks to be a touch of extra length on the suede giving it the buttery, svelt look that the hide rocks best.
The ASICS Gel Respector will be available from Above the Clouds on June 1.
