ASICS fashions a referential spiritual successor to a 20-year legacy model with the introduction of the GEL-BND™ sneaker.  This time around, an inclination to complement the natty footwear trends are underscored by striking constructive features made to dress differing streetwear looks.

The original Australian-ready runner serves as the wireframe for the core’s design alongside its conspicuous aesthetics and color palette, which subverted the status quo for marathon shoes at the time. Rather than leave the past to be, the Japanese imprint attentively hews timeless characteristics of the GEL-DIABLO™ model and GEL-KAYANO® 5 OG model together for a modern creation that boldly flaunts its legacy; Unique tongue embellishments and logos from its predecessor further its allusive nature. Fashion-forward cues can be witnessed through the upper’s adorning of premium materials, while mesh, not only just providing a tech feel, yields breathability. And though there is a chunky shaping, the offering maintains a light-weight feeling and comfortability.

Watch the video lookbook above to get a full view of the shoes. Also, cop yours today for $80 USD. To find out more about the products and where to buy, please visit asicstiger.com.
