Editor’s Notes: Renowned London sneaker retailer Footpatrol and ASICS are teaming up once again, this time on an anime-inspired GEL SAGA. According to Footpatrol, the collaboration is inspired by Japanese animation's world of glowing 2D effects, dynamic camera angles, and intense fight sequences. The GEL SAGA first launched in 1991 and was inspired by the Gelgoog mecha suit from the classic anime TV series Mobile Suit Gundam, inspiring the Footpatrol team to stick with the OG theme for this 2018 remake.

In addition to the sneaker, Footpatrol tapped London-based animator Art&Graft to create some exclusive items to go along with the anime theme. A gift pack available only to the first 25 customers purchasing the shoe at Footpatrol London and Paris includes a limited edition comic, a collection of stickers, and a miniature manga-style robot designed especially for the project. Customers at the Footpatrol London store will also be treated to a full in-store experience complete with giant robot on display during the campaign period.

As always, leave your thoughts on the project and whether it’s a cop or drop in the comments.
