From their collaborations to in-house designs, Asics has mastered the art of storytelling through shoes. With the moon's ethereal charm continually inspiring designers and artists globally, Asics taps into this celestial marvel with its upcoming Gel-Kahana TR V2 Moon Pack, evoking the tranquility and mystery of lunar landscapes.
Diving into the cosmos, the Moon Pack offers two distinct Gel-Kahana TR V2 colorways, each inspired by varying phases of the moon. The first silhouette captures the moon's shadowed side with a dark grey finish, while its counterpart illuminates with a light grey hue. Grounded in a breathable mesh base, ripstop, nylon, and TPU layer atop create a perfect blend of materials. Function meets form with metallic eyestays that infuse a utilitarian vibe into the design. Subtly placed on the lateral heel is the Gel-Kahana TR V2 branding, a nod to the shoe's legacy. The sneaker's dynamic lacing system is hard to overlook, with the dark grey pair boasting burgundy nylon loops and the lighter variant keeping it muted with tonal grey loops. Ensuring comfort with each stride, a foam midsole with Gel cushioning sits below, culminating in a rugged, worn-in black rubber outsole.
The Asics Gel-Kahana TR V2 Moon Pack will release August 12, 2023, through Asics and select retailers online and in-store, possibly an exclusive in China. Keep it locked to our Twitter and the Sole Retriever mobile app for the latest releases, raffles, news, and more in the sneaker and streetwear world.
