The Fujitrabuco 7 features plenty of zeitgeist-appropriate trail-inspired details, such as DUOMAX arch cushioning and a rock protection plate to shield against any sharp objects underfoot.

Price: €180 (approximately $200) for the GEL-Kayano 5 OG. TBC for the GEL-Fujitrabuco 7.

Editor’s Notes: C2H4’s umbrella creative company, Chemist Creations, is now being launched as a standalone brand.  To celebrate, Chemist Creations has teamed up with ASICS on its first-ever sneaker collaboration. The Los Angeles-based brand has reworked a GEL-Kayano 5 OG and a GEL-Fuji Trabuco 7, giving both a futuristic and clean makeover.

Where C2H4 makes use of oversized branding and exaggerated silhouettes, Chemist Creation strips its products back to basics, focusing instead on colors, materials, and texture. The GEL-Kayano 5 OG launches today at select retailers. The second sneaker in the pack, the GEL-Fujitrabuco 7, will be available on November 9.

Check out both sneakers in detail above.
