rokh is the eponymous label of renegade designer Rok Hwang, who boasts Celine and Phoebe Philo as previous compatriots. Now, he’s adding ASICS to his collaborative catalogue with some functional-looking GELs.
Working on the GEL-Kinsei and GEL-1090, the running shoes turned fashion footwear prominently display OG-esque colourways with the inconspicuous addition of climbing-style ropes, nodding to the burgeoning rock climbing community.
Given the experimental nature of the collaboration that isn’t for everyone, limited pairs will be exclusively available from DSM London and the webstore. Don’t get tangled up deciding which one to choose – the first launch has already sold out, but restocks are coming.
