ASICS has released a two-pack of new takes on the GT-II that nod to Japan’s Mt. Fuji. Arriving in a warm “Apricot” and a dark “Smoke Blue,” each pair seems to be influenced by the skies above Japan’s tallest peak with the former drawing from the morning while the latter pulls from the night.

Both are constructed from a mixture of smooth and perforated suede. The “Apricot” offers a yin and yang of detailing on its midfoot Tiger stripes with the lateral side presented in dark blue while the medial side takes on a light sky blue. On the other hand, “Smoke Blue” keeps things consistent with silver on each quarter panel. Both pairs also feature a debossed Mt. Fuji stamp on the heel, an embellishment that’s replicated in full color on the insole. More ASICS branding is present on tongues and heels, while white GEL-filled midsoles and contrasting outsoles complete the look.

The Mt. Fuji-inspired ASICS GT-II in “Apricot” and “Smoke Blue” will both be available at retailers like 43einhalb come midnight CET on July 30. Each pair is priced at $120 USD.
