Berlin-based fashion label GmbH has a longstanding partnership with ASICS, which will continue into the FW20 season as evidenced by the former’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week. Together, ASICS and GmbH unveiled a new range of collaborative footwear collection comprising two styles.
The first looks to be the ASICS GEL-Quantum, though it has been slightly modified by GmbH, and is the more sportswear-influenced of the two models on show. It arrives in three colorways, ranging from more monochrome color blocking to a mismatched, colorful version. The GmbH x ASICS GEL-Quantum features the model’s 360 sole unit, which offers heel-to-toe GEL cushioning.
The other model is a hybrid and much more formal than the first. The upper takes cues from the chappal, a traditional footwear style originating in India, and features an upper with overlapping straps at the forefoot. The sole unit looks to be taken from the recently-relaunched and samurai armor-inspired, GEL-Kinsei OG. The upper has been outfitted with co-branded detailing.
Check out both pairs above and stay tuned for further release information, which should arrive ahead of the FW20 season.
