In a world where “limited” Jumpman packages and retooled reissues rule the roost, (Alliteration, much?) I’m relieved to announce that the Asics Spring ’09 line-up has so much flavor, it’s soleful. (Nike is like Michael Jackson, the brand can never get it’s soul back.) Asics gathers inspiration from the byword, “A Sound Mind is A Sound Body,” and applies it to their product through awesome colorblocking, luxurious quality, and phenomenal comfort. The trend continues on into next year, as the Gel Lyte Speed, Gel Lyte III, GT II, and GT Quick create a formidable battalion of rubber, mesh, and leather that’ll assault any shoehead’s fashion sense.
