Asphaltgold Joins ASICS for the EX89 “Impromptu”

It’s been over five years since Asphaltgold and ASICS brought forth their colorful take on the GEL-DS trainer. Now, the two have reunited to take on one of ASICS’ newest silhouettes: the EX89. Launching last year as a modern take on the GEL Extreme from the ’80s, the EX89 blends basketball heritage with modern styling. Now, with the “Impromptu” collaboration, the duo has reimagined the concept through a music lens — particularly with respect to jazz.Tapping into the spontaneity associated with impromptu performances, the structure of the shoe sees nuanced material placement and color usage. Nubuck, hairy suede and soft leather all combine at the upper while satin notes appear at the lining. Amongst these details, the lateral’s Asphaltgold tag and earth-toned palette provide a versatile-yet-distinct collaborative finish.For those interested in picking up a pair, the Asphaltgold x ASICS EX89 “Impromptu” is set to touch down on shelves on August 11 at 6pm EDT via Asphaltgold at a price of €159 EUR (approx. $175 USD). In addition to this, an in-store launch event is set to take place on August 12 at Asphaltgold Store Darmstadt and POP-Up Store Frankfurt featuring an exclusive vinyl by Silvan Strauss that fits the “Impromptu” theme as a bonus item. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Asphaltgold GmbH (@asphaltgold)In other exciting news from the footwear space, a first look at Above the Clouds’ take on the ASICS GT-2160 has surfaced with silver and forest green hits.Click here to view full gallery at Hypebeast
