Up There and ASICS Reconvene for a Floral-Inspired GT-II Collaboration

While primarily known for engineering marathon-ready running models, ASICS makes it a point to back its lifestyle sneaker category with a considerable amount of energy every year. In recent memory, we’ve seen the Japanese sportswear brand produce projects with the likes of Bodega and unveil a forthcoming capsule with JJJJound, and now it has announced its GT-II collaboration with Up There.Floral elements from Australia and Japan take are the focus of this footwear initiative to symbolize a partnership that merges language barriers and bridges continents. Up There implements a crochet mesh upper that is fitted with tones of Pink Heath — a flower that is strongly associated with the retailer’s hometown of Victoria, Australia. Sitting adjacent to this comes a mix of dusted gray suedes atop the upper overlays and sage accents along the interior lining which are meant to translate Chrysanthemum leaves — the official flower of the Hyogo Prefecture. Lateral heels split between actual embroidered imagery of the Pink Heath on the right shoe while a Chrysanthemum adorns the left side.If interested in copping, Up There is slated to release these on May 6.In other footwear news, ASICS has unveiled the latest evolution of its METASPEED series.Click here to view full gallery at HYPEBEAST
