Editor’s Notes: After dropping exclusively at Highsnobiety Shop in early November, the GEL-Nandi 360 will be available at select retailers on November 22, as well as at ASICS direct later on. The GEL-NANDI 360 adds a 360-degree GEL sole to a classic upper, creating a hybrid much in the mould of the GEL-Kayano 5 360 that ASICS recently introduced. It follows the trend of retro, archival models being spruced up with modern tech, giving them a decidedly contemporary spin.

Check out the ASICS GEL-Nandi 360 above and stay tuned for further release information.
