Editor's Notes: With the sheer amount of bangers that ASICS has been putting out over the past couple of years, especially given the strength of Kiko Kostadinov's collaborations and design studio's output, it's been hard to keep track of every drop deserving of attention.

There have been very few misses, if any at all, to the point that fans have been scraping together their coins to ensure their collections stay up to date. Many a silhouette has undergone revival, finding their way out of the archive and back onto the market, welcomed with open arms.

It's a strategy that's proven hugely successful for the brand since the appointment of Kiko's team and looks to be one that'll continue long into their tenure.

One such success story in the past year has been that of the GEL-1090, now appropriately dubbed the GEL-1090 v2.

The millennial runner is a beautiful thing, a testament to the strength of ASICS' design language throughout the early 2000s, a design that has proven itself timeless.

While the silhouette certainly wasn't lacking in any areas, nor desperately in need of whatever a collaboration could offer it, it has certainly benefited from outside influence. Case in point, Freja Wewer's version.

Reveling in the era that birthed it, the silhouette undergoes a metallic treatment that stretches across its construction. Freja's Danish design sensibilities shine through, creating a balanced palette of understated yet still statement-making hues.
