Chemist Creations Doesn't Hold Back on Branding With ASICS All Court Alpha-L Collaboration
The lace shrouds are swappable, too.
Los Angeles-based C2H4 sub-brand Chemist Creations has teamed up with
The collaborative pair follows on from the duo’s previous GEL-Kayano 5 OG and GEL-FujiTrabuco 7 SPS drop, which brought cool colors, technical elements and subtle branding to the two pairs. This time around, Chemist Creations dresses the All Court Alpha-L in black leather, contrasting it with smooth black suede on the toe box, mid-panel, and heel alongside white ASICS branding on the side and heel.
Chemist Creations’ most notable addition to the sneaker is the large ASICS “a” symbol that graces the tongue, acting like a lace shroud on the shoe’s vamp area. This can be switched between a black or white covering, with the extra color coming in a special sealed package.
Elsewhere around the shoe, you’ll find signatures from the Yixi Chen-founded brand such as “化學製品” stamping on the rear, as well as ASICS branding on the midsole and a final “a” stamp on the heel.
Take a look at the Chemist Creations x ASICS All Court Alpha-L above, and pick up a pair now from stockists such as HBX where the sneaker retails for $191 USD.
