ASICS & Kiko Kostadinov Reconnect For New GEL-Aurania
Continuing their longstanding partnership which included the recent release of the GEL-Kiril model, Kiko Kostadinov and ASICS come back together for a new original style that inspired by ASICS archives.
Back with a new silhouette dubbed the GEL-Aurania, the Bulgarian designer takes a design cue from retro ASICS silhouettes with a design that features an upper with cut out slits and an asymmetrical lacing system that uses the medial eyestays and loops around the lateral sides. Elevated with bold conceptual twists, the sneaker flaunts a mesh base and patent leather overlays with a GEL puck heel and EVA foam in the forefoot. Appearing in two colourways – a black and grey iteration, as well as a burnt orange and red pair, the GEL-Aurania is finished with a sizable spiral logo.
