AFFIX and ASICS continue their partnership with the release of another GEL-Kinsei OG, this time around giving the technical runner and even more tactical aesthetic with added GORE-TEX.

Following the release of its “New Utility” offerings from June 2019, Kiko Kostadinov, Taro Ray, Stephen Mann and Michael Kopelman of AFFIX have given the recently-revived classic a clean blue, brown and green-toned upper. By muting the colors, the utilitarian label gives the GEL-Kinsei a clean, industrial-indebted look that suits the shoe’s technical nature.

The sneaker comes equipped as standard with Impact Guidance System technology in the sole unit — which encourages a more natural foot movement — as well as internal molded heel counters, a TRUSSTIC SYSTEM for reinforced stability and GEL technology in the front and rear sole unit components. New to the GEL-Kinsei is GORE-TEX, which has been used on the upper to provide weather-resistance as we approach the harsher months ahead.

AFFIX will also be providing its latest collaborative pair in an exclusive box that comes with a set of dual-branded GORE-TEX Infinitum gloves. The AFFIX x ASICS GEL-Kinsei OG GORE-TEX is available online now from the AFFIX web store for £230 GBP (approx. $298 USD) and at SSENSE.com for $200 USD.

In case you missed it, here are the top ten best vis-tech sneakers you should invest in this Fall.
