Releasing on September 5th are the Asics x AFFIX collaboration on the GEL-KINSEI. Being one of the most technical running shoes on the market its packed with technical features. The Heel unit alone has a complex I.G.S (Impact Guidance System) that is comprised of 3 substantially sized GEL technology units which are fused together into it. Since the GEL-KINSEI is a high mileage shoe they used weight reducing technology called TRUSSTIC around the arch to lessen the overall weight and to increase the longevity of the sole.
Another technical feature goes into the backstory of the collaboration with AFFIX. The AFFIX brand has a cult following and explores the concept of Global Utility. One of the main influences going into the design comes from the colours of a High-Pressure Water cutting system. Which (judging from the title of this article) you know what they did with some of the shoes. Check out images below
