ABOVE THE CLOUDS X ASICS GEL-1090
One of Australia’s best know sneakers shops in the world : Above The Clouds teamed up for the first time with the Japanese brand Asics, to offer us a collaboration on a silhouette that made its comeback in 2019 : the Asics Gel-1090.
The shoe was designed as a tribute to Asics and its philosophy “sound mind sound body”. It also coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Australian shop.
In a minimalist style, this collaboration offers a range of premium quality materials. We thus find an upper combining leather, mesh and suede in an off-white colourway. Some small touches of blue enhance the monochrome side of the model. Above The Clouds branding details are applied on the heel and the insole. The words “Mind” and “Body”, referring to the Asics’ motto “Sound Mind Sound Body”, appear on the tongue.
The ASICS GEL-1090 x ABOVE THE CLOUDS will be launched exclusively at Above The Clouds (Sydney) on Saturday 28th 2020 and will be available in some retailers worldwide such as : END., KITH, Dover Street Market & SNS on Saturday 4th April 2020.
