Editor’s Notes: Foot Locker, Pensole Footwear Design Academy and ASICS have all joined forces to create a special variation of the GEL-180 silhouette dubbed, “Fresh Up.”
Designed by footwear designer Brady Corum, and Australian color and materials designer Vince Lebon, both drew inspiration from hip-hop culture’s inherent nature of creativity and innovation, to feature textures and colors from microphones, turntables, graffiti and more on the silhouette.
With limited pairs produced, the sneaker will be sold exclusively at select Foot Locker locations around the world, and according to Nice Kicks, those locations include Paris, London, Milan, Sydney, Melbourne, Toronto, NYC at 34th Street & Time Square, LA at Hollywood, Atlanta at Lenox, Miami at Aventura, Chicago at State St, Houston at Galleria and Portland at Washington Square.
In related news, HAVEN’s ASICS GEL-Lyte MT collab is a nod to Canada’s west coast.
