Asphaltgold x Asics Gel-DS Trainer OG “Jugendstil”

by Henrik Buzzi


Asphaltgold’s new collaboration pays homage to their city. Known as the center of Art Nouveau, Darmstadt offers numerous opportunities to indulge in the good life. With the Asics Tiger x asphaltgold Gel-DS Trainer OG “Jugendstil” they would like to reflect this vibe. Inspired by the artist colony of Mathildenhöhe, a shoe has been created that is based on this architectural masterpiece.

The Gel-DS Trainer impresses with its high-quality material mix. Butter soft suede in the color evening sand extends from the perforated toebox to the heel. The Asics Tiger logo and the heel tab form a contrast in hot pink. 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. Releasing March 13 at Asphaltgold.
