Wood Wood x ASICS GEL–DS Trainer OG
Danish sneakers mainstays Wood Wood have something rock-solid in the works for their 15th anniversary: Wood Wood tapped ASICS Tiger for a collabo on the ASICS GEL–DS Trainer OG in a limited release poised to drop on May 6, 2017.
The Wood Wood / ASICS GEL–DS Trainer OG delivers pure 1990s sneaker style in a lightweight package, adorned by metallic accents with pops in red and blue. The upper is crafted from synthetic leather with a silver shine and black outlines in the style of classic running shoes (the shoe was created for high-performance runners, after all).
True to its name, the shoe features ASICS GEL cushioning in combination with an equally grippy and responsive DuoSole outsole. A neoprene bootie hugs the ankle for a perfect fit, while a skeleton upper increases midfoot stability.
Next to subtle color accents on the lace tips, forefoot, and eyelets, the Wood Wood / ASICS GEL–DS Trainer OG nails all the details with stylistic touches W.W. branding on the tongue and the ASICS GEL logo on the heel. Also check out this trippy video:
The Wood Wood / ASICS GEL–DS Trainer OG will launch exclusively at the ASICS Tiger flagship store in Osaka, Japan and at Wood Wood stores in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Frederiksberg, Berlin and at Wood Wood on Saturday May 6th.
