Coca-Cola Does ASICS GEL-Quantum 90 Collaborations Nearly as Well as Its Drinks

It’s the real thing.

Earlier this week, the beverage giant Coca-Cola and Japanese sportswear company ASICS unveiled their collaborative GEL-Quantum 90, and now the duo is back with yet another take on the running-ready sneaker.

Whereas the previously-seen pair opted for a full red upper with “Coke White” detailing on the sole unit, this new pair delivers something much more subtle for those looking to rep Coca-Cola less overtly. As noted previously, this shoe’s official name is “Tokyo” which is presumably related to a forthcoming Tokyo Olympic Games collaborative product, which would tap into ASICS being a Japanese company and Coca-Cola being the longest-running sponsor of the International Olympic Committee to date.

So, to continue the theme, Coca-Cola fits the GEL-Quantum 90 with a full white mesh upper while the raised Tiger Stripe cage has been covered in red branding. Hits of red detail components such as the rope laces, the ASICS branding on the tongue, and even the lace stay — which aptly features a depiction of a Coca-Cola bottle on it — while more “Coke Red” touches can be found lining the interior and on the branded heel tab.

Rounding out this homage to the beloved soft drink is the GEL unit itself, which is tinted green in respect to the glasses and bottles that Coca-Cola was frequently served in. Last but by no means least is a complementing box design, also fitted with “Coke Red” and white branding.

Take a look at the Coca-Cola x ASICS GEL-Quantum 90 in “White/Coke Red” above, and pick up a pair from retailers such as Asphalt Gold on April 9. The sneaker is set to cost €129 EUR (approx. $152 USD).

Elsewhere in the realm of bold sneakers, here is a closer look at the Nike SB Dunk Low “What the P-Rod.”
