Germany-based sneaker retailer asphaltgold had teamed up with ASICS Tiger to release an upcoming collaboration that pays homage to their city, Darmstadt.
Known as the center of Art Nouveau, the shoe is dubbed “Jugendstil” inspired by the artist colony of Mathildenhöhe, a shoe has been created that is based on this architectural masterpiece.
This ASICS Gel-DS Trainer sports a butter soft suede upper with a perorated detailing. The ASICS Tiger logo and the heel tab come in a contrasted Hot Pink color tone, while the asphaltgold branding can be found on the taping of the tongue, on the flag label in the back, as well as on the insole. The neoprene tongue features the Art Nouveau pattern we designed, which shines through the overlays. Exclusively at asphaltgold, the shoe will be presented in a specially designed metal box, which will round off the theme appropriately. In addition to the branded flatlaces, there are two more roundlaces in the colors Rose Taupe and Evening Sand.
