Bodega based out of Boston is collaborating with Asics on the Gel-Mai. The two have linked up for the Bodega x Asics Gel Mai ‘Underground’ which will release next week.
The Asics Gel-Mai is a thoroughly late 1990s tech design, a notable departure from familiar Asics classics like the Gel Lyte III or V. The upper is one piece, with a totally external, asymmetrical lacing structure, with the standard Tiger stripes relocated to a two- dimensional logo on the midsole, towards the heel of the shoe.
Choosing a techy, performance model deliberately suggests the dynamism of human movement, and the skeletal structure as the foundation of this physical vitality. Even the colorway recalls the athletic roots of the Gel-Mai more than it does a creepy cemetery.
