AFFIX — the collective comprised of Michael Kopelman, Kiko Kostadinov, Taro Smith and Stephen Mann — have given the GEL-Noosa Tri 12 a number of unique design touches, from its contrasting rubberized toe box to bead-like laces. Other notable design elements include its tongue, which has been highlighted in orange on the black pair and in red on the white pair, putting a focus on the cut-out.
The rubberized material found on the toe cap has been used to provide structure to the soft mesh upper, while tonal ASICS branding is overlayed on top. AFFIX branding is spotted at the rubberized rear and is joined by a contrast-color ASICS-branded heel tab.
Take a look at the AFFIX x ASICS SportStyle GEL-Noosa Tri 12 in both colorways in the gallery above. They are set to release on March 16 at stockists such as Sneakersnstuff for £155 GBP each (approx. $202 USD).
