ASICS, the revered Japanese institution that places a premium on a balanced mind and body, has taken their commitment to new heights by embracing sustainability and recycling in their latest collections. Teaming up with Fujitaka Co., Ltd., a lavish towel manufacturer hailing from Imabari, ASICS has birthed a truly extraordinary sneaker known as the ASICS GEL-NYC.

In a remarkable display of environmental consciousness, both ASICS and Fujitaka have seamlessly infused their eco-friendly ethos into the retro-futuristic design of the GEL-NYC. They have ingeniously repurposed surplus thread from towel production to fashion the shoelaces, embroidery details, and other eye-catching accents of this magnificent shoe. The result? A hybrid creation that primarily flaunts subtly captivating hues of “French Blue” and “Grand Shark,” allowing the surplus towel components to bask in the limelight. The dark allure of the GEL cushioning underfoot adds to its charm, while the foam, rubber, and stability structures boldly evolve in elegant off-white tones.

As the global launch of the ASICS GEL-NYC on asics.com tantalizingly looms on the horizon, sneaker enthusiasts worldwide must exercise patience as it initially hits the streets of Japan on Friday, October 6th. Thankfully, official photos of this sustainable masterpiece are available below, offering a tantalizing glimpse of the sneaker that is worth every moment of the wait.
