Originally released in 2007 as a neutral running shoe, the GEL-NIMBUS™ 9 returns once again this year with futuristic outdoor details courtesy of Kiko Kostadinov Studio. After introducing the UB3-S GEL-NIMBUS™ 9 for Season 3, ASICS and Kiko Kostadinov now reconnect for an updated UB5-S silhouette.

In addition to the “Black/Gunmetal” colorway which was revealed earlier this month, the ASICS UB5-S GEL-Nimbus 9 has now been revealed in a lighter “Glacier Grey/Soothing Sea” makeup. While maintaining the silhouette of a running shoe, Kostadindov adds rugged outdoor trail details and eye-catching splashes of color. Line detail elements from the GEL-TRAIL ATTACK are incorporated onto the lace-like mesh uppers, edges of the leather overlays arrive in red spraypaint details, and futuristic “galaxy matter” inserts are found on the heel windows. Rounding out the design are shock-absorbing GEL midsoles and a liquid-gradient midfoot plate.

Take a closer look at the ASICS UB5-S GEL-Nimbus 9 “Glacier Grey” above and find the pairs available now via ASICS for $250 AUD (approximately $173 USD).

Elsewhere in footwear, Air Jordan 1 Mid receives a fall-friendly “Tartan” makeover.
