Gel-NYC Fujitaka - French Blue
Asics has partnered with Fujitaka Co. Ltd, best known for their manufacture of high quality bath towels, to reconstruct the GEL-NYC™ with Shuzen influences. These details include upcycled yarn materials for the laces and mixed materials for the upper that create a traditional patch and repair effect.
The GEL-NYC sneaker sources inspiration from heritage and modern performance running styles. Its upper construction references the GEL-NIMBUS 3 shoe from the early 2000s and blends it with various embellishments from the MC-PLUS V design. The tooling contrasts the upper's retro influences by using the GEL-CUMULUS 16 system. Through a combination of lightweight foams and GEL technology inserts, this midsole formation helps create advanced underfoot comfort.
