Reinvigorating the essence of past stylistic and technological developments, two heralded silhouettes from our performance running archive inspired the creation of the GEL-MC PLUS™ - a hybrid sneaker with a modern aesthetic, that simultaneously evokes the storied heritage of ASICS.
ASICS performance sneakers have been run wear staples over the past two decades, best known for their comfort, durability and stability. The upper uses the design language from the original GEL-MC PLUS™ sneaker and gives an early 2000’s retro feel. The tooling system, taken from the GEL-CUMULUS™ 17 sneaker, brings the hybrid approach full circle - creating a silhouette that is both nostalgic and modern, with technological upgrades made throughout.
The redesigned tooling features advanced cushioning taken from the midsole design of the GEL-CUMULUS 17, the upper boasts a revamped and modern construction that allows for a new variety of colour blocking opportunities and mesh overlays. A nylon medial strap stretches from the eyelets to the midsole to create a more snug and firm fit.
