Asics – a healthier soul in a healthier body.
Asics have always strived for the community to have a healthy soul within a healthy body, so much so that the Latin translation of this phrase from Japanese is an actual acronym of Asics (anima sana in corpora sano). With the brand focused on technological advancement within the running culture, they haven’t let their lifestyle side slip with recent collaborations with Woei and most famously with New York footwear designer Ronnie Fieg. As well as their high end designs, the running brand from the Orient has given us a constant supply of original and definitive colourways this year, with no sign of slowing down any time soon. The latest to be released are these GT II and Gel Lyte III combination, both in a complimentary teal and purple outfit, along with hints of grey and black. These styles are easily two of our favourites, due to their simplistic lines, classic use of materials and the signature split tongue on the Gel Lyte. Another model to be added into the mix is the Gel Saga (with its rounder profile) is more suited to the street than the track, compared to others on the market. Available now in selected size? stores and online, the Gel Lyte III, Gel Saga and GT II are a definite must if you’re looking for something off the beaten (running) track.
