Starting at the top of the shoe is an embroidered “GEL-1090” label, complemented by a small patch logo at the tongue. Most of the uppers come in intricately woven mesh, offset by hits of contrasting leather accents along the eyelet panels, sidewalls, rear quarter and toecap. Light blue highlights appear at the shoe’s side stripes, accompanied by smooth red gradations. All of these details rest over an articulated white midsole, detailed with a gradient GEL-cushioned heel piece that offers optimal comfort and support.
ASICS’ GEL-1090 “Blue Coast” is currently available on Très Bien’s website for $125 USD.
