Asics has just unveiled a new trio dubbed the Asics Academic Scholar Pack which is showcased above. The trio of performance running and heritage icons includes the GEL-KAYANO 26 running shoe, the GEL-NIMBUS 21 running shoe and the GEL-KAYANO 5 OG sneaker. Sourcing inspiration from 90s prep fashion trends, this collection marks the first time in the brand’s history that they will utilize heritage materials on a current performance running style.
Bridging the gap between archived design details and modernized performance running technology, these footwear offerings each reflect the bold color blocking seen in academy uniforms and nostalgic prep fashion trends. Rendered with sophisticated shades like burgundy, navy, birch and pine green, this collection echoes the timeless tones and designs of American fashion in the 90s.
The Gel Kayano 26 and Gel Kayano 5 OG come constructed out of premium pigskin nubuck, suede and perforated leather paneling throughout the upper along with mesh textiles along the midfoot for a luxurious and premium appearance. Each shoe implements Asics’ DUOMAX technology in the midsole for enhanced stability, while the GEL technology cushioning system in the heel supplies lasting comfort, a connection back to their design advancements in the 90s,
Next we have the Gel Nimbus 21 which comes equipped with an engineered mesh upper to create a customized feel along with FLYTEFOAM Propel technology and GEL technology cushioning pockets in the heel and forefoot to offer premier comfort. As far as looks go, the shoe exudes ivy league inspiration in its color palette with gold hues on the metal eyelets for elegant contrast.
The ASICS Academic Scholar Pack releases Friday, September 6 at select ASICS accounts and on asics.com.
