Kirsch is the German brandy that’s made from double-distilled morello cherries, and its the ingredients that now play a considerable part in the GEL-VENTURE 6’s design. For example, a cream mesh-like fabric base has been applied to the upper as a nod to the brandy’s colorless aesthetic, while a bold “Fiery Red” hue works the ASICS logo on the mid-panel alongside details on the tongue, eyelets, heel tab, and interior.
Classic ASICS branding in silver appears on the tongue while GEL-VENTURE 6 appears on the rear-quarter, leading the eye to the heels where you’ll find cherries in a “Fiery Red” circle, relating to the collaboration once more.

Take a look at the Kirsch x ASICS GEL-VENTURE 6 “Birch/Fiery Red” above, and pick up a pair from retailers such as AFEW Store on March 11 for €99.95 EUR (approximately $110 USD).
