British label YMC has continued its ongoing collaboration with ASICS, taking on the 1983 Tarther OG silhouette for their second joint release. The sneaker is set to arrive in two colorways — “Midnight Blue” and “Caramel Brown” — with a graphic print inspired by traditional Mexican textiles and the “Madchester” rave scene of the ’80s.
The sneaker is constructed with premium suede overlays, which sport the brown and blue colors, covering a custom-designed ikat print. Other features include a gum outsole, a YMC-embroidered leather heel tab and tonal stitching across the uppers.
Take an official look at the YMC x ASICS Tarther OG campaign in the gallery above. The collaboration is available now from the YMC web store.

Our latest collab with @asics_sportstyle takes design cues from the ‘Madchester’ scene of the late 1980’s. The ASICS TARTHER™ OG shoe, originally launched in 1983 and by the Summer of 1987, when the rave movement began, the style was a staple on the feet of party-goers. Coming soon… #ASICS #TARTHER #YMC
