The GEL-1090 running shoe from 2003 has been re-engineered with a modern lens, while retaining its signature design details. Initially inspired by the sleek lines of a motorcycle, this shoe is meant to emphasize the notion of speed.
Reissued with a simplified upper construction, this retro running shoe preserves its influential features, like the tiger claw marks on the toe overlays and heel counter.
Similar to the motion of a waving checkered flag, sweeping lines appear along the midsole, while the heel is layered with GEL cushioning to increase comfort.
Reimagining the heritage of the GT-1000 series, the GEL-1090 sneaker returns with its original performance running aesthetic, while revamping its functionality with improved comfort and cushioning
