Kiko Kostadinov, the famous fashion designer and artistic director of Asics’ sportstyle line, continues to update retro silhouettes from the Japanese brand’s catalog. A few days before the release of the highly anticipated UB4-S GEL-1130 (article available HERE), the designer introduces a new model made from recycled materials, the UN1-S Jogger X81.
This silhouette is inspired by several jogging shoes from the ASICS archives. Revisited by the Kiko Kostadinov studio, it has a trendy, elegant and casual look.
The UNI-S Jogger X81 is offered in 4 colorways, including the « Coffee Bean ».
This special version consists of a dark brown upper combining mesh on the toe box with leather on the side panels. The Tigers Stripes, tongue, inner lining and most overlays are also dressed in coffee bean brown. A nice touch of contrast is provided by pastel yellow elements : the rear side insert attached to the upper eyelet, the heel overlay, the slimmed down part of the under heel sole and the asics « a » logo adorning the narrow pull-on modified tongue tag. A comfortable, high-performance dark brown Cush-Hole midsole and a color-coordinated Caldera outsole finish off the design seamlessly.
The ASICS UN1-S Jogger X81 « Coffee Bean » and the other 3 colorways are out August 13, 2022 at select retailers and on asics.com, priced at $190 per pair. Enjoy !
