Way back in 1990, ASICS caused a storm with their rugged, asymmetrically laced GEL-MAI. The technically triumphant running shoe was a hit with sneakerheads and athletes, although not everyone could come to grips with its progressive design. Nearly three decades later the GEL-MAI is making a comeback, and the once-futuristic silhouette now gives us everything we?re after in a forward-thinking retro model. Up the top the mesh construction features a structural overlay, creating a pouch-like form that cradles the foot. While underneath, there?s a chunky midsole that provides plenty of cushioning, with an eye-catching Tiger Stripe jewel embedded in the heel. Through the lens of hindsight, it?s easy to see why this technical runner was so far ahead of its time ? it looks like it could have been designed yesterday.
The ASICS GEL-MAI will be available from select ASICS stockists on April 13.
