Japanese brands NEEDLES and ASICS are gearing up for their first footwear collaboration as a duo. The two are no strangers to sneaker partnerships as NEEDLES just launched its capsule with DC Shoes last month and floral ASICS were utilized during Cecilie Bahnsen’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week SS24.

For NEEDLES and ASICS’ link-up, the EX89 — based on the basketball shoe from 1989 — utilizes NEEDLES’ signature purple hue across two colorways. The first look sees a primarily-black leather construction accented by purple stitching while the latter features a similar arrangement with white as the dominant color. Both pairs spotlight ASICS branding at the heel with purple embroidery, matching NEEDLES’ papillon motif that rests just below it.

For those looking to pick up either pair, NEPENTHES is set to host the launch of the NEEDLES x ASICS EX89 in its white and black colorways starting at 10pm Eastern on September 29. Both looks are priced at ¥24,200 JPY (approx. $162 USD) each.
