Inspired by the rural Japanese city, ASICS showcase an affinity with the natural world with their Izumo pack.
Serving as ASICS' central inspiration for their latest pack of cutting-edge, technically-minded sneakers, the city of Izumo in the Shimane prefecture offers its rural beauty and rich cultural heritage as the central point of reference for the Japanese label's GEL-KAYANO 26 and GEL-NIMBUS 21 silhouettes. A tranquil coastal hub of spirituality, the city acts as muse for ASICS' latest offering.
Known as the "Home of the Gods", Izumo is the home of Japan's oldest shrine, Izumo Taisha. A place of great natural wonder and spiritual significance, ASICS transpose earthy tones onto their practically constructed footwear, ensuring that they deliver on style, substance and influence.
Taking things back to basics, the Tokyo-based sportswear brand forge a connection with the earth. Rendered in neutral browns, forest green, teal and pale seafoam, this duo of running sneakers emulate the natural surroundings of Izumo. Constructed with breathable mesh uppers, the brand's FlyteFoam technology sits to the midsole, ensuring that both styles offer premium athletic quality in tandem with their conceptual aesthetic.
