A first look at the sneaker.
Asics and Patta have teamed up to redesign the GEL-MAI. This might be a blast from the past for a few of you as the original model was released way back in the 1990’s, so it will be interesting to see how Patta add their 2017 touch.
The GEL-MAI includes a unique asymmetrical lacing system and fuzegel technology to keep the foot cushioned at all times. Although this is in keeping with the shoe’s origin as a trail model, the modernized ASICSTIGER x Patta GEL-MAI Knit has now moved in a more daily-use direction, crafted with a dark brown nubuck overlay that is set against a knitted upper decorated with Patta’s script logo interwoven throughout the ‘rose cloud’ coloured material.
The ASICSTIGER x Patta GEL-MAI Knit is set to launch at Patta’s Amsterdam and London storefronts on the 14th of October, as well as online on the 16th. This will be shortly followed up by a wider global release on the 4th of November so get your pocket money ready. However, for now, take a closer look at the sneaker through the images below.
