Attention, Asics releases the first general releases of the GEL-NYC! The runner comes from the pen of Angelo Baque and his brand AWAKE NY. The layered upper consisting of mesh, suede and reflective layers is inspired by the GEL-Nimbus 3 and GEL-MC PLUS V. Also for the tooling they used the Asics archive, more specifically the GEL-Cumulus 16. The end result - an exciting new creation that fits perfectly into today's zeitgeist!
In 1986 Asics introduced GEL technology first on the Japan-exclusive Asics Freaks and then on the GT-II - and the rest is history. GEL technology works on both the rear and front of the foot by strategically placing the gel where it works best. Rearfoot GEL technology reduces impact at the heel and allows for a smooth roll-off, while in the forefoot it improves cushioning during forward movements. The GEL technology, formed from inert polymers to silicone, have been constantly developed to produce a substance that reduces the demands on the human body during sports.

Whoever thinks of high-quality running shoes in the 21st century usually automatically has the ASICS brand in mind. But ASICS has not just been around since yesterday. The history of the brand begins as early as 1949, when 31-year-old salaryman Kihachiro Onitsuka was convinced that sports could make a positive contribution to the development of young people in his hometown of Kōbe. Based on this incentive, he founded the company ONITSUKA TIGER and began producing high-quality sneakers. Since 1977, the brand has borne the name ASICS. The name is an acronym and stands for the Latin proverb "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano" - in German: "A healthy mind in a healthy body". A proverb that still determines ASICS' corporate policy today. The development of the GEL cushioning system, which was launched in 1986 and still forms the basis for all new ASICS running shoes, has contributed significantly to the brand's success. In the sneaker scene, the most popular models are the GEL-Lyte III and the GEL-Saga. Designer Ronnie Fieg and the two stores Patta Amsterdam and Atmos Tokyo also immortalized themselves on these two silhouettes. The GEL-Kayano first appeared in 1993 and it perfectly reflects the style of the 90s & 2000s with its eye-catching details and chunky sole. Since its first release, the GEL-Kayano has undergone an annual facelift, so fans of the shoe can regularly look forward to new interpretations of the iconic silhouette. The work behind the new Kayano models takes place behind the doors of ASICS headquarters in Kōbe, home to one of the most advanced running research centers in the world.
