ASICS SPORTSTYLE REVIVES THE GT-2160™ SNEAKER WITH VINTAGE TECH DETAILS FROM THE PREVIOUS DECADE.
THE SNEAKER PAYS HOMAGE TO AN ARCHIVED DESIGN FROM THE GT-2000™ RUNNING SHOE SERIES AND ITS ICONIC DESIGN LANGUAGE.
Today, ASICS SportStyle announces the return of the GT-2160™ sneaker that originally debuted within the GT-2000™ series during the 2010s. The reissue of the heritage model highlights the tech evolution that was taking place in this era of running shoe development.
This shoe retains its sleek and wavy aesthetic that was symbolic of the GT-2000™ series’ technical design language. Meanwhile, dual GEL™ technology inserts are positioned in the rearfoot to help create advanced cushioning and comfort underfoot. The design also includes a segmented midsole construction that replicates a popular development feature that became popular amongst ASICS running shoe models between the mid 2000s and late 2010s.
The GT-2160™ sneaker will launch with collaborations from DIME and Cecilie Bahnsen that include special iterations to mark the return of the heritage runner. The inline version will launch Wednesday, August 9th, in White/Pure Silver, White/Illusion Blue, and White/Shamrock Green for 4,700 THB on ASICS.COM and in select stores including Carnival BKK, Siwilai Store and Beams Thailand.
Prior to the GT-2160™ launch, ASICS will hold a pop-up event in Paris from June 22nd till 24th. The main section will include our brand experience event that is centered around movement, sound, and uplifting your mind. ASICS is also launching collaborations with Dime, Cecilie Bahnsen, HAL STUDIOS, and AIREI in Paris, followed by wider releases in July and August. Each collaborator will launch their individual projects via their own pop-up shops between June 22nd-24th with limited pairs.
