The GELSAGA is one of the standout ASICS models this season, bringing a 90s running classic to current times. After the recent OG Zebra release, the brand now launches the Yu Nagaba x ASICSTIGER GELSAGA collab.
For this special project, the ASICS teamed up with Japanese artist Yu Nagaba to bring scenes from the streets of Tokyo to the sneaker. The collaboration takes inspiration from “the love of a boy has for his girlfriend”. While the leather upper features a subtle Birch tone, Nagaba’s signature illustrations appear on the heel, outsole and insoles. Inspired by photos a young man took of his girlfriend in the streets of Shibuya und Shinjuku, they add a special aesthetic to the delicate design. Reflective logos and the words “Shibuya” and “Tokyo” lace prints in the artist’s handwriting then finalize this GELSAGA.
In addition, the collab includes three cotton shirts and a hat that all feature matching graphics by Yu Nagaba.
