Towards the tail end of a year filled with appealing retro releases, ASICS is reviving another heritage silhouette from its expansive archives: the GEL-1090. An accessible, versatile running silhouette that originally made its way to market in 2004, the GEL-1090 may fly slightly more under the radar than other recent ASICS re-releases like the GEL-Kayano 5. Nevertheless, it’s an interesting touchpoint from a largely unexplored phrase in running footwear history.

Arriving in a “Silver/Steel Grey” colorway, the 1090 flaunts a veritable plethora of metallic silver overlays, trimmed with black and sitting on top of a crisp white mesh base. However, the design is far from grayscale: an ombre-style orange to red fade appears on both the lateral and medial midfoot’s branded details. Down below, a white EVA foam midsole contains ASICS’ signature GEL cushioning in the heel while also utilizing red midfoot and heel shanks for extra support. A black, white and grey outsole completes the look.

The ASICS GEL-1090 “Silver/Steel Grey” is slated to release on November 22 at retailers like Asphalt Gold, with its MSRP set at €100 EUR (approximately $110 USD).

That’s not the only old-school runner ASICS is reviving: the brand recently brought back the OG GEL-Lyte III “Citrus” to celebrate the silhouette’s 30th anniversary.

“Less is more” – ASICS brings back the classic GEL-1090 running silhouette that was originally released in the early 2000s. Back then serving not only olympic athletes as a fast performance running shoe, the 1090 returns as a stylish retro runner. To celebrate the release, we teamed up with ASICS-lover and asphaltgold-homie @tem.hem and shot a clean editorial with the 1090. @asics_sportstyle GEL-1090 EU 40 – 48 | 99€ online 21.11. | 00:00 (CET) check link in bio! thanks to: Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt; Englische Automobile Jo Rimpl, Darmstadt; Teppich Galerie Sascha, Mainz #asphaltgold #darmstadt #asphaltgoldmen #asicssportstyle #gel1090 #asics1062
