Date: July 22 2018

London-based retailer Footpatrol have again linked up with ASICS for an anime-inspired drop, this time revisiting 1991’s GEL-Saga

The Gel Saga originally tipped its hat to the Gelgoog mecha suit from the iconic TV series Mobile Suit Gundam, and it looks like Footpatrol are sticking to a similar aesthetic build with their latest drop. Using stylistic touch points from Japanese anime (dynamic camera angles, neon colour palettes and intense fight sequences), the sneaker has white mesh uppers, titanium grey overlays, EVA moulded midsoles and translucent outsoles.

 

Footpatrol have also reached out to animators Arts&Graft to provide an exclusive gift pack for the first 25 customers purchasing the sneaker at Footpatrol London and Paris - available July 28. A worldwide release will follow on August 11 (available via Footpatrols online store and select retailers).
