ASICS Gel-1090 1021A275 400 shoes
Asics gel-1090 was first released in 2004 as an alternative to the premium Kayano line. As with many performance models, the design team worked on the gel-1090, drawing inspiration from an unexpected source. Motor sports. Without an extra top, it resembles the streamlined and aerodynamic form of a racing car. The relatively simple design, featuring sleek and clean lines, the ASICS logo on the side, and synthetic overlays on the heel and toes, epitomised the "less is more" philosophy in the design approach of the ASICS models of the time. Now, 15 years after its withdrawal from the market, the basic model gel-1090 returns to its original OG appearance, offering a retro model that is not associated with sportswear of the 90s. Its modest design and subtle details have stood the test of time and are a welcome addition to the ever-growing catalogue of retro running models.
