Patta x Asics Gel-Mai

by Henrik Buzzi

Following up on the recent Gel-Lyte joint effort, longtime collaboration partners Asics and Patta keep the momentum going by teaming up to deliver a new take on the 90s ASICSTIGER classic, the Gel-Mai. Originally launched in the 1990s, the Gel-Mai is back in 2017, and Patta have added their personal touch to this special shoe. The Gel-Mai offers a unique asymmetrical lacing system and fuzegel technology emphasizing the cushioning, which is a key feature of this shoe. By origin a trail model, The Asics x Patta Gel-Mai Knit has been outfitted with materials for daily wear, consisting of a dark brown premium nubuck overlay, set against a comfortable knitted upper in a rose cloud color. The sock-like upper features Patta’s Script logo interwoven throughout, and 3M reflective accents on the webbing. Every pair comes with additional rose cloud and brown laces. The Asics x Patta Gel-Mai Knit is set to launch at Patta on October 14, followed by a wider global release on Saturday November 4th
