The minds over at UBIQ have been doing a fair bit recently, especially with Asics. Their “Midnight Bloom” Gel Lyte V was an interesting blocking choice and their next installment comes in the form of a GT Cool dubbed “Nightshade”.
The inspiration once again comes from mother nature, with the Nightshade family of plants often being highly toxic. Throughout the middle ages these were used in medicines, hallucinogens and poisons (shout outs to the GoT nerds who thought of “Essence of Nightshade”).
This GT Cool uses it’s inspiration to come out with a fantastic mix of earthy greys, accented with lime green hits and a touch of red. Reflective paneling adds depth whilst the use of a premium nubuck (smooth and perforated) along with rich light grey suede and a traditional nylon split tongue round out the materials.
The UBIQ GT Cool “Night Shade” comes with three lace choices (Green/Black Rope, White and Red flat) and is available now in the online store in very limited quantities. $170.
