ASICS recently unveiled its Japan Fast Pack, which comprises three models and takes inspiration from the Japanese samurai. Making up the pack are the Skysensor Japan, Japan Seiha 2, and Tarther Japan sneakers, all of which feature a mixed material upper with ASICS’ famous side stripes in a contrasting color. Keeping things simple, the base of the uppers are kept monotone. while hits of color on the lace tips, heel, and tongue provide contrasting detailing. Branding featuring “JAPAN” in bold text is also present on the heels of each shoe.
Each silhouette is inspired by Japanese culture and is designed, produced, and manufactured in Japan. Highlighting the importance of the pack, ASICS has paid attention to detail.
Both the Skysensor and the Japan Seiha 2 dropped in September already, while the Tarther Japan is set to follow in October. Retail ranges from €230 for the Tarther and Japan Seiha to €240 for the Skysensor ($265 and $275 respectively). This is the first time that all three lightweight, marathon-winning, performance running shoes are available outside of Japan. They will be stocked at European specialty retailers.
