UPDATE: Our first good look at the upcoming Bodega x ASICS GEL-Mai has arrived via newly surfaced online photos. A fuzzy suede toe and thick leather panelling indicate these ones have been put together using the finest materials, while expert styling ensures eye-catch factor; keep yours peeled for the drop on June 23.
Using cryptic footage with a macabre twist, the crew at Bodega have started teasing an upcoming ASICS GEL-Mai collaboration. With a focus on our inescapable mortality, the skeletal structure of the 90s running style lends itself perfectly to the colab, while the colourway reflects the stones and bleached bones of your average suburban cemetery. A disturbing sentiment for some – a lively sneaker for the rest of us.
The Bodega x ASICS GEL-Mai ‘Underground’ will be releasing on June 23 at Bodega, stay tuned for more details.
