EX89 - White Gentry Purple
The EX89 sneaker blends the heritage influences of the GEL-EXTREME basketball shoe from 1989 with modern cushioning properties.
Originally created by Toshikazu Kayano in the late 1980s as his first project with ASICS, the upper’s layered leather construction is met with spirited colour blocking that matches the era’s iconic NBA team uniforms. The cushioning system is updated with FF BLAST technology and a sculpted heel shape to improve underfoot comfort.
The outsole’s pattern is meant to mirror the view of a city from the sky. This functional grip feature was initially inspired by the designer’s first business trip to the United States in 1987.
