By September 1, 2021Fashion News, Sneakers

A coming together of Japanese design.

A Bathing Ape and its signature graphics and camo motifs have found themselves on a pair of Asics sneakers. The sneakers in question are a pair of Gel-1090 sneakers which are designed for performance athletes.

The shoe features the sportswear label’s Gel technology and a 2000s running aesthetic which has been upgraded with A Bathing Ape’s eponymous cloud camo pattern across the upper along with its historic tiger caricature logo. Matching the orange hue of the orange tiger, details and Asics branding are crafted in the same hue.

See the A Bathing Ape X Asics Gel 1090 below, which is available to buy now from select retailers.
