Reinvigorating the essence of past stylistic and technological developments, two heralded silhouettes from ASICS performance running archive inspired the creation of the GEL-MC PLUS™ - a hybrid sneaker with a modern aesthetic, that simultaneously evokes the storied heritage of ASICS.
The upper uses the design language from the original GEL-MC PLUS™ sneaker and gives an early 2000’s retro feel. The tooling system, taken from the GEL-CUMULUS™ 17 sneaker, brings the hybrid approach full circle - creating a silhouette that is both nostalgic and modern, with technological upgrades made throughout.
The redesigned tooling features advanced cushioning taken from the midsole design of the GEL-CUMULUS 17, the upper boasts a revamped and modern construction that allows for a new variety of colour blocking opportunities and mesh overlays. A nylon medial strap stretches from the eyelets to the midsole to create a more snug and firm fit.
