New collaboration between Asics and the Kiko Kostadinov studio, the Bulgarian designer famous for his futuristic and striking creations. The UB5-S Gel Nimbus 9, the result of the creative interaction between the Japanese company and the creative studio, falls in that retro-futuristic style mentioned above. The design is inspired by outdoor, mountain and trekking with naturalistic suggestions. The colour palette, which is a reference to panoramic views with glimpses of the sea, is placed on a multi-layered upper made of mixed materials ranging from mesh to leather to synthetic. Some details embellish the aesthetics such as the iridescent insert on the heel with Gel-NImbus 9 lettering, the laces that by their construction create a wavy effect, and the webbing sewn into the medial part that extends well beyond the tongue. Inevitable is the GEL technology positioned on both the heel and forefoot for enhanced shock absorption, and the Ortholite insole that keeps the shoe cooler, drier and healthier while offering superior comfort and performance. If you are a retro-futuristic style fanatic or are simply looking for a high-performance trainer, then the UB5-S Gel Nimbus 9 will be a real must-have for you!
