Most of the silhouette is dominated by mesh uppers in clean monochromatic arrangements. A stretchy ripstop pull tab is placed at the top of the tongue, complemented by round laces and smooth leather eyelet panels. ASICS-branding is prominently displayed as large stripes cover the shoe’s sidewalls and an embroidered logo appears at the lower heel tab. The toecap features a rubber honeycomb cushioning panel that offers substantial shock-absorption, while the midsole’s heel is equipped with GEL technology for added comfort and support.
ASICS’ HS2-S GEL-MC Plus “Sea Glass” and “Metropolis” are currently available on SUBTYPE’s website for $200 USD.
