ASICS x UBIQ GT-Cool ‘Nightshade’

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Following on from their extremely popular ‘Midnight Bloom’ Gel Lyte V rendition, Philadelphia-based retailer UBIQ have teamed up with ASICS once again on this strong reworking of the revived GT-Cool model.

Taking on this distinctive runner, UBIQ took the same group of influences as they did for the ‘Midnight Bloom’, channeling their admiration for mother nature and the dark hours to create this moody ‘Nightshade’ rendition.

However, this reworking goes deeper. Nightshades are a plant family that are notorious for being highly toxic. Used throughout the Middle Ages as medicines, poisons and hallucinogens, its name is a derivation from the Old English ‘nihtscada’ meaning ‘unrecorded night’.

The trainer itself is constucted from plush grape leaf green leather uppers with a perforated toebox and neon green accents. Coupled with black hiking laces that complement the black side panel branding and a bright white split tongue that works tremendously well with the branding contrast midsole, the shoe is finished with a grey heel panel and subtle 3M hints throughout.

Release Information
Name: ASICS x UBIQ GT-Cool ‘Nightshade’
Colour: Grape Leaf/Black
Style Code: H43BK-8090
Launch Date: 16th August 2014

Another legendary runner from the Asics archives, the Gel Saga was first released in 1990 for the burgeoning Japanese and US markets, receiving critical acclaim from all quarters. For this iteration, its Gel cushioned sole is decked out in speckled grey, complimenting the classic Asics stripes at the side panels and it receives hits of icy blue, standing out at the laces, liner and branding.
