ASICS x Overkill Gel-Sight «Desert Rose»
Inspired by the elegant and sophisticated Moroccan patterns and brightly blooming desert roses, the Berlin-based store Overkill and ASICS have teamed up to release the nifty «Desert Rose» model, based on the unique retro runners Gel-Sight.
The Gel-Sight model first saw the light in 1992, in Japan, and was originally created for trainings of the Japanese running team. These running shoes, equipped with the patented amortization «Gel» technology and high stabilizing «Build Up» insert in the heel area, have proven their excellence amongst professional athletes. At the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, ASICS Gel-Sight were an integral part of sports uniform of the Japanese team.
Since 2003 the renowned store, located in the very heart of Berlin, has been the number one boutique for sneakerheads and fans of street culture from all over the world. Being a member of many collaborations and limited edition releases, organizer and sponsor of exhibitions and street art festivals, the Berlin-based boutique has absorbed the contemporary city lifestyle and popularized it in the old streets of the German capital.
The joint work, based on the running retro silhouette, is made of high-quality natural suede with genteel velvet structure, in rich burgundy color. Tiger stripes of pink and turquoise leather symbolize the bloom of desert rose and solid skies of hot desert. The highlight of this release is certainly the sophisticated Arab pattern, adorning the heel and lining. The logos are put on the tongue and snow-white sole, whereas a massive «Build Up» insert, which provides additional fixation while in motion, completes the total composition.
