Today we get a better look at the collaboration between Asics and Parisian brand Surface 2 Air. Together they worked for Spring 2011 on the Gel DS Trainer 14.
“Resulting from the Surface to Air style-savvy and the Asics technologic expertise, the Gel DS trainer 14 is a sleek, lightweight structured sneaker that can be worn
for running or to stride along the streets. They are performance shoes for people who have a sense of esthetic but most importantly who practice sport more than talk about it. Inspired by radical lightening storms and the technical garments worn on Olympic swimmers, the shoe design is striking by the attention to its’ detail: the sneaker comes in an all black color way yet the different innovative materials used on the upper add a subtle graphic effect. Reflective piping & the Surface to Air logo are featured on the tongue, toe box and on a metal eyelet on the side-panels. A canvas shoe bag that can be worn as a backpack as well as a complimentary t-shirt are included with the pair of sneakers.”
The model will be released in honor of the Marathon de Paris on April 10th 2011.
