ASICS is an acronym derived from the Latin phrase ‘Amina Sana in Copore Sano’, a phrase that translates to ‘Sound Mind, Sound Body’. It celebrates nuances of balance in the physical and mental, real and imagined, mindfulness in the everyday.
To mark the 10th Anniversary of Above The Clouds, we are proud to announce our first collaborative project with ASICS on the Gel-1090™. This Gel-1090™ is a sneaker that celebrates a decade in business, combined with a philosophy that lies at the heart of all ASICS products, Sound Mind, Sound Body.
This clean, sophisticated design is seen on the Asics Gel-1090™ that was first introduced in 2003 and designed to emphasise the concept of speed. Now, 17 years later and only months after its re-introduction in 2019, Above The Clouds, has taken a nod to its classic and sophisticated design, to present this elevated, minimal and premium take on the Gel-1090™.
As pictured above, the Asics Gel-1090™ x Above The Clouds is a minimal, creamy, off-white colour-way that features translucent tiger stripes to reveal birch mesh underlays.
In continuation of the concept of balance and mindfulness, this shoe is all about the small details. ASICS blue detailing is featured on the tiger stripes across the mudguard and heel counter with Asics and Gel-1090™ branding visible on the lateral sides of the shoe.
Blue detailing follows through to the tongue, that uses hints of blue in the stitching followed by text on the tongue that reads ‘Mind’ on the right, and ‘Body’ on the left shoe. A call to take each step with intent and be reminded of the concept of a Sound Mind, Sound Body,
To top it off, it would not be complete without Above The Clouds branding in white on birch colour suede on the heel tab as well as Above The Clouds designed and branded gel-inserts and and a special edition box.
The Asics Gel-1090™ x Above The Clouds shoe will release exclusively online on Saturday 28th March 00:01AM AEST and will be available in Men’s sizes, ranging from US4-14 at $200 AUD.
We are so excited to share our first collaborative project with ASICS with you.
