asics re-issue the Gel Saga

asics have solidified themselves as a heavyweight brand over the past five years, utilising now much loved models such as the Gel Lyte III to full effect. asics’ back catalogue of runners is about as nostalgic as it gets, with all the familiar vibrant colours and futuristic designs that were prominent back in the day.

This release sees the first ever retro of the asics Gel Saga, which was originally released back in 1990. The lightweight design and modern aesthetics are pretty subtle, with all of those familiar asics characteristics evident. The upper is constructed with a combination of mesh, synthetic materials and leather accents. As the Gel tag suggests, this shoe utilises the asics Gel cushioning system. Two make-ups are on offer, with a clean white/blue and a subtle black/purple colourway. Both are excellent and capture the classic runner aesthetics associated with the ’90s.

Available now in-store and for mail order over at Foot Patrol.
